    Re: Southwest pilot brings father's remains home from Vietnam 52 years later

    (from the comments)
    Last night, I launched a C-17 from a deployed location. I walked up the stairs on the aircraft to do some last minute maintenance before it headed home. At this point, I didn't think anyone was on the aircraft. Once I reached the top of the stairs, I saw a preacher sitting on the sidewall seats. In the middle of the cargo bay, there was a casket draped with a US flag. One of the most humbling experiences I've ever had.
    There are more well worth the time to read - puts it all into perspective....

    While I am not a fan of country music, I have made an exception for this song, thanks Bazz.
