A Hero’s Journey Home

CrossesKilled in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia , just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough , Georgia.  A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time.

The link below is a short travelogue of that day’s remarkable and painful journey.
