Sgt. Jay M. Hoskins A Parisian Welcoming
Dateline: August 13, 2009 Temp: low 90s, Paris, Texas.
Hoskins final journey home began after a chartered plane delivered his flag draped coffin. The family welcomed their love one home. There was a formal transfer of the coffin from the tarmac to the hearse. The staging of the procession ran from the flight line to the main entrance to the air field. High school students from the school he graduated from lined both sides of the street. The video shows highlights of the seven mile journey from the airfield to the funeral home.
As a video producer, I have seen many of these types of videos before, but I never experienced one in person. I live in a big city and we lose sight of real priorities. A human sacrifice still means something to many Americans and our allies. Our fallen soldiers allow for us to protest over healthcare, taxes, and anything else our heart desires. When Jay Hoskins came home today, traffic did not pull over it got off the street, and cleared the way for his procession. Thousands of citizens, white collar and blue collar, liberals and conservatives all put aside their differences to honor a local hero. For without these brave men and women it would not be possible for us to freely agree to disagree with each other.
