  • Back in 1970, on a 707 flight from Kennedy to San Francisco, a young Marine came aboard with his good arm managing a crutch, while the other was in a half-body cast, snugged to his chest.

    Once aloft, he arranged a pillow against the shuttered window and slept for more than four hours without stirring.

    Leaving the plane in San Francisco, he found five older veterans there to carry his gear and provide a casual escort to baggage claim and ground transport.

    Sure enough, a barefoot "hippy chick" planted herself squarely in the center of the concourse ahead of the group. clearly bracing herself to scream "Baby Killer" in that Marine's face.

    Two of those vets stepped ahead and firmly assisted "hippie chick" to the side and sat her down against the wall.

    "Stay there and don't you dare say a word," was all that was needed.

    She stayed.

    I would advise those self-indulgent, Free Speech attorneys posing as religious humans, to stay to thunder out of the eastern Appalachian country for any military funerals.

    They would likely find an ample supply of folks willing to take their chances with a local jury for kicking some self-righteous posteriors.

    The funeral of a dead soldier is not the place for some ego-centric Rectal Orifice to raise a stink.

    That a court would do what is reported is totally unacceptable.

    For friends and acquaintances to stand by and allow that conduct to disturb a military funeral is unforgivable.
