A proper goodbye

My grandfather served as a paratrooper in a parachute infantry in World War II. This photo was taken of him in France during the war.  

Wednesday morning, as the funeral home came to take his lifeless body, they wrapped him in a blue blanket and then placed the American flag over him.

Then, the man who took such precious care of his body saluted him.

I think he would have appreciate the proper goodbye.
