Attached pics of SSG Alford's funeral 5 Dec 2008. Flags and escort by Patriot Gurads who are a very active group--and a very cold group yesterday. The American flag was presented to his mother by his best friend, an NCO now in SWC who went through SFTG with Jamie and then served with him on 5th SFG ODAs. His district's Congressman was also present to present flags flown over our nation's Capitol to his brother and two sisters.

RIP.

Our prayers for your family; your battles are over. Rest in Peace, SSG Alford.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
