Capt. Speicher Comes Home
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.
