This is a pretty neat story. http://www.menafn.com/qn_news_story.asp ... 0f85dde%7D.

Note how the event ended at Audie's grave.

Christie, the story appeared in a blog from a military web site that was picked up and reported in
an Audie Google a couple of days ago. Great story, well written, and yes the men that participated
in the reunion ended it at Audie's grave. I got the impression that the part at Audie's grave was
not part of the orchestrated ceremonies, that the men did that on their own. But maybe I am wrong,
I don't know. Just goes to show you that after all these years, Audie is still remembered and highly
respected among the men who shared the journey called WWII with him. Hopefully, Dave's
petition for Audie to receive the PMOF will be awarded and even in a thousand years from now
a grateful nation will honor Audie and the men who kept America free will be remembered and
still revered. Just my thoughts... Shirley Jean.

I would love to have been there when they began singing Dog Faced Soldier. I'll bet there was a great crowd wondering why they were singing at this particular grave and gravitated to it to see whose grave it was. Audie was probably saluting them from on high with a big smile on his face :wink: .
