Las Vegas (KTNV) —Our military and women are at stake to protect our freedom.
Honoring them after they die is just as important as salute them every day. As a result, various troops gather on most Thursdays to hold memorial services for members who are often forgotten.
“Thank you for what the people before us experienced and what they did in the various wars,” said Daniel Cox.
Daniel is a military veteran who volunteers to be a Patriot Guard Rider in southern Nevada. This group, along with many other military groups, soon invaded the chapel of the South Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery and honored seven men from three different branches with proper military service.
“Thank you for what the people before us experienced and what they did in the various wars,” Daniel said. “I experience different emotions. I’ve probably been here for seven years and the day I hear the taps playing hit you in different ways at different times.”
The servicing group is unaware of the deceased veterans. They are strangers. But they get together to ensure that these veterans receive the military service they deserve.
“These veterans have no family representatives, so we act as their family,” Daniel said. “It’s our way to give back to the veteran, stand there and just shut up to make sure he or she has an army-style funeral.”
Veteran voice comes from Ford dealers in southern Nevada.
