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 a Marine Warrior, Daniel Wiggins, our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Danny. And to Danny it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for his honorable service in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom while serving with the U.S. Marine Corps. No greater love and patriotism is shown than a man dedicate his life in service to his country. Danny, you are a brave Marine Warrior and a true Patriot. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace. Semper Fi!
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 Danny's family and loved ones.
