I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Dion will never be forgotten.

For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I'm home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I'm only a civilian
And I don't even know if it's allowed

But I salute you; allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you.

For those missing in action;
for those who didn't make it home.
I know you're in God's presence you are not alone.
For every neatly folded flag;
for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.

I salute you, allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you .

I Salute You.

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 GM2c Dion Rashaun Roberts our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Dion. And to Dion it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Navy. No greater patriotism is shown than a man lay down his life in service to his country. Dion, you gave the last full measure of devotion for what you believed in and fought for. You are a brave Navy Seaman, a Patriot Warrior and a true Hero. With your passing, our Country has lost a National Treasure. 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 1,307 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Dion's family and loved ones.

Knowing your pain first-hand, as hard as it is to believe sometimes, know God's mercy does heal when you leave your desire to understand why at His feet & trust in His goodness. Some day you will know but in the meantime, may Dion be resting in God's complete love and may you find peace in His promises.

To the mother and family,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. The loss of your son especially touched me because my son was a 2004 graduate of ZBTHS and died in service in the Navy almost six years ago.
You may be hurting, you may be angry, but please be assured that many who have walked your path are praying for you. You are not alone.
