honoring a fallen soldier

So my mom and I were driving from SA to San Marcos to the outlet malls to do some shopping. As we were driving we saw some ambulances on the overhead bridge... then some police on the side of the highway... then some firetrucks and firemen on the overhead bridge.... then some more ambulance and police... then about 100 civilians waving American flags on an overhead bridge.... THEN another 100 (or so) military personnel in uniform along side the highway...

My mom and I were very confused... we had no idea what was going on so we decided to make a few phone calls. Finally, David (my semi-godfather) had the answer. A soldier from New Braunfels, Texas was killed in Iraq and his body was arriving back home. The town was out to welcome him back home and show their support to the family.

It was very sad, yet so humbling and amazing. It was just so nice to see all that support. Not gonna lie... I got a little teary-eyed.

God Bless Our Soldiers.
