Tribute to a Hero

Here is a picture of the wreath that will be placed on the grave of Sgt Adam Plumondor U.S. Army. from the Nation of Riflemen, of which I consider myself a proud member.

The leaf body is Laurel, to signify a Champion, The flowers are Yellow Roses, to signify one of the Colors of the Regiment, and to remind us that Adam waits for us, now, and so to remind us to our duty as he did his. The Ribbons are White, to signify the purity of the Honor and Devotion to Duty of this man of men. The words inscribed theron are Gold, to signify that no higher Honor may be expressed.

UPDATE: Riverdog attended the Memorial Service for Adam and two other members of the Stryker Brigade,SGT. Frank Hernandez, 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment and SPC Clinton Gertson, 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment. He has some photos of the catafalques of the fallen being honored; and a description of the ceremony that was so simple and yet so complete that it made you feel you were there as you were reading it.

Thank You for being our eyes and ears, from all of us who couldn't go to the Final Farewell, Major Schneider.

As we thank, and think of Adam, I thank and think of you and the Nation of Riflemen. Sui Generis. Thank ye verily.
