We are so sorry for your loss. My God keep fast hold of you with his right hand during this difficult time.
I have been so lucky in life that all my uncles were wonderful. Uncle Jake was a wonderful uncle and person. A joy to be around. I will miss him very much. And it's service men like him that made our country great.
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to J.W. (Jake) Daughtry our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Jake. And to Jake it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during WW-II while serving as in the U.S. Army. Jake, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Jake's family and loved ones.
