Saying Good Bye

Today we said good bye to my girlfriend’s father, Reginald E. Vernon, a WWII Navy veteran laying him to rest at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Hermitage PA.

We drove into the cemetery down the Avenue of Flags and were greeted by the amazing sight of 444 of our countries flags sparkling in the sunlight.

The Honor Guard of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6233, West Middlesex; and VFW Post 5286, Farrell; and American Legion Post 432, Wheatland delivered military honors to Mr. Vernon. Three rifle volleys were fired and three casings were placed into the folds of Mr. Vernon’s flag. God bless you Reginald E. Vernon for your faithful service to our country and your family. May you rest in peace.
