Continued prayers for Noah’s family.
#Brotherhood #LiveLikeNoah
From the Palmetto Boys State FB page:

“We celebrated the life of our Brother Noah Tweed yesterday with family and friends. A young man that loved well and lived life to the full.

Noah’s example to us is a reminder of the brevity of life and importance of Brotherhood. Among the many stories shared, two PBS stories stand out - one from his Sr Counselor and one from a fellow Citizen who Noah helped through a difficult life challenge.

Also, our own Jay Pitts was asked to read a powerful letter from Noah’s sister, “A letter from Maddie.” #LiveLikeNoah

Our prayers continue for Noah’s family.”

“I didn’t make it in 1969 because I had just enlisted in the Army after graduating from The Citadel and was deployed overseas,” Morehead recalls. “I returned in May of 1970 and my wonderful wife was understanding enough to let me attend in June so that I would not miss it again.

A beautiful morning at Tyger River Park remembering David Hortman! He always challenged us to be fit and to support Palmetto Boys State and today we did our best! Some ran and some walked and we are thankful for everyone who came out today, especially with the late event changes and challenges. We are already talking about plans for 2022 and if you weren’t able to join in today, we will be excited to see you back next year. As we approach the 10th anniversary of David’s passing in August, please continue to lift up his family and friends. We had several folks ask this morning about financially supporting our efforts - as you may know, one of David’s hopes was that we would all support Boys State. If you’re interested in a financial donation toward helping more young men attend PBS, please visit davesrun.com and select the “Donate” tab at the top. All gifts go to Friends of Boys State and are tax deductible. Learn more about this outstanding leadership program at palmettoboysstate.com.

This is a picture the Defense Department has never let the public see until now. This is a behind-the-scenes look at Dover Air Force Base where the bodies of fallen service members are prepared for burial. That includes being properly dressed, all the way down to the smallest detail.

In this picture, Staff Sgt. Miguel Deynes is making sure the uniform is just right for a U.S. Army pilot who was recently killed in Afghanistan.

There is a very specific process once a fallen service member is returned home. The bodies are flown back to the United States on a cargo jet. A team of service members wearing white gloves carry the flag-draped coffins to a white van that takes them to the Armed Forces Medical Examiner.

The remains are washed, hands are scrubbed clean, and hair is shampooed. If necessary, the bones are wired together and damaged tissue is reconstructed with flesh-toned wax. Sometimes, they will use photos. Sometimes, they just intuition to recreate the wrinkles in the faces and the lines around the mouth or the corner of the eyes.

“It has to look normal, like someone who is sleeping.”

Once the body is ready then the uniform is prepared. That includes putting medals in the proper order on the ribbon rack above the uniform’s breast pocket.

During the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan 10 to 20 bodies were arriving every day.

The embalmers often worked all night to get the bodies home on time. This can take an emotional toll on them, so the mortuary has a large gym to allow workers to blow off steam. Many say they are haunted by how young the fallen soldiers are and by how many of them leave behind small children. That’s why Sgt. Deynes says they are advised not to do research into the backgrounds of the soldiers.

“If I knew the story of every individual who went through here, I would probably be in a padded cell.”

The dress uniform being prepared in this particular case will be in a closed casket. Even so, it will be perfectly tailored, starched and pressed. Everything will be checked down to the last detail.

Sgt. Deynes says, “[The family is] not going to see it. I do it for myself. It’s more than an honor. It’s a blessing to dress that soldier for the last time.”

Memorial Day is about these service members and the families they left behind.

This is for you, boys.

This is for all of the people, around the world, that wake up every day hoping that today’s sunrise will be better than the one before.

This is for the selfless and brave who gave their last full measure of devotion across fields of distant lands.

This is for the lives that were lost in battle but whose souls will be forever guarded at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

This is for the children, in Afghanistan, that asked me “is everywhere in America like Disney World?” and “does water really come to a room in your house?”

This is for everyone who serves a purpose greater than themselves, in the military or IN LIFE.
