Capt. Speicher Comes Home

Friday, August 14, 2009, 14:14 EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

The flag-draped casket containing the remains of U.S. Navy Capt. Scott Speicher arrived in Jacksonville, Florida, yesterday and lay in repose overnight at All Saints Chapel, Naval Air Station Jacksonville.

I am watching the video stream from channel 4 in Jacksonville, Florida, as they cover the memorial motorcade carrying Capt. Speicher.

Even though I didn’t know him, I am sad beyond words. I sent his widow the POW-MIA bracelet I wore for him for 5 1/2 years. My bracelet and those worn by others and returned to the family will be buried with him.
