Service over. Honors rendered. Went flawlessly. I will be back home Wednesday and will have something up later this week.
Your support, prayers and well wishes are most appreciated.
Now all of us are embracing the suck and moving forward. Potential Veterans Administration battles ahead. We are already lining up resources.
To those for whom it matters, Travis died a devout Christian. His minister was also a close friend (and had some difficulty conducting the service).
People he served with in Afghanistan were there. His closest friend, also a medic, gave a stirring eulogy.
As I type this the thing welling up inside is a shout.
