RIP, Warrior..............

I believe that SF is a 'calling' - not too different from the calling missionaries I know received. I knew instantly that it was for me, and that I would do all I could to achieve it. Most others I know in SF experienced something similar. If, as you say, you HAVE searched and read, and you do not KNOW if this is the path for you --- it is not....

I do not regret a day I spent in uniform—I’m immensely proud of my service. If I’ve learned anything, I’ve learned what a truly remarkable thing it is to be a combat veteran. Now I want to live an exceptional life for those who never made it home.

Rest In Peace Brother!!

I'll do my best to make this Ride, this is from the North Texas Patriot Guard:

"Ladies and Gentlemen,

The family of Staff Sergeant Jeremy E. Bessa, United States Army Special Forces (Green Beret), Killed in Action in Afghanistan on February 20, 2009 during Operation Enduring Freedom, has asked that the Patriot Guard be involved in the final services for him. Staff Sergeant Bessa is currently scheduled to arrive at Addison Airport on March 9, 2009 with services and interment on March 10, 2009. Staff Sergeant Bessa is survived by a wife and young son. His father and brother are also in the United States Army.

Details are being worked out at this time between the family and the military and a final itinerary will be posted as soon as possible.

Please prepare to stand tall and silent for this young man who gave his life for his country.

Thank you.

S. L.

Deputy State Captain

North Texas PGR"

Martin sends.
