Media VFW Post 3460


Under a partly cloudy morning sky we gathered to pay honor to our brother Ed. Because of the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 crisis; our numbers were severely limited. Those that could attend stood outside the church and some had the opportunity to enter briefly to say a prayer and share a personal goodbye. A handful were permitted to remain for the service. Some members of the VFW Post 3460 Honor Guard served as pallbearers and were blessed to be included.
The journey from the church to the grave was a short but challenging climb up the hill to where Anna and Dick were waiting to be joined by Ed. Others in the Honor Guard stood ready with arms to fire the final salute and play a mournful taps. The flag was folded and presented to Ed Junior by the Army Reserve. It was all a privilege well done; Sergeant Hess would have complimented us.
As a token of thanks, here is an acknowledgement to some of the folks that were able to attend:
Honor Guard: Alan Dick, Ken Delmar, Jack Heavens, Pat Flanagan, Harry Eder, Frank Newburg, Bob Stewart, Tom Tunaitis, Joe Strauch.
Past Post Commanders: Jake Knapp, Ed Modestowicz.
Army Reserve: Col. Jeff Jahnke, Capt. Gail Baker, SFC Ted Trains
VFW: Rich Angelini, Mike Nozilo, Bob Hughes, George Rodgers, Joe Casey.
HA / Aux: Mike McBride, Lynette McCann, Lisa Parks, Jessica McCann, Harry Kent, Wayne Cline, Alison Higgins.
We certainly missed a few names. Thank you to all that were there as well as those that could not be present. We know Ed was in your thoughts that day.
A final thank you to Ed Hess Junior: He graciously invited everyone to Barnaby’s for a meal and a toast. We all spent the time sharing stories and experiences with the Sarge.

This is really sobering. First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city where you went to high school and look at the names. Click on the name and it will give details of the person's death, a picture or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time
and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what
those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
