It is never too late to honor a fallen soldier or for a family’s angst to finally be relieved. For families of servicemen and servicewomen, a burial of remains is the final and often necessary ritual to honor their loved one.
Today, after 37 years, Pfc. James Jacques will be buried with full military honors at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on what would have been his 56th birthday.
May he rest in peace and may his family’s grief be healed; may they also feel a nation’s gratitude for a young man’s commitment to his country.
