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 our Brother-in-Arms, SGT1c Riley G. Stephens, U.S. Army. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Riley. And to Riley it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while opposing enemy forces in Afghanistan. Riley you gave the last full measure of devotion for what you believed in and fought for. No greater love and patriotism are shown than when a man lays down his life in service to his country. Riley, you are a brave American Warrior, a true Patriot and a national 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 1,261 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Riley's family and loved ones.

I would like to express my sorrow for the passing of SFC Riley Stephens. I offer my deepest sympathy to Riley's family, friends, troops and community. I did not know Riley but there seems to be few words to adequately express what I owe to an elite soldier such as SFC Riley Stephens who gave so much of himself to this country. I will pray for Riley's family.
