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 Arthur Joseph DeLaune, Jr. our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Art. And to Art 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 and the Korean War while serving first in the U.S. Navy and then in the U.S. Air Army. Art, 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 Art's family and loved ones.

So sorry to hear of Uncle Art passing. He always had a kind word and genuine interest in family. I have fond memories of Family Christmas in Lake Charles. He will be missed and loved. I am sorry I can't be there for you, Tom & Elba, Don & Karen and Marie.

Dear Delaune Family,
We are so sorry to hear about the death of Mr. Art. We had the opportunity to work with him in 2012 driving for Enterprise. He was a joy to work with and I loved listening to him talk about his family. Our prayers are with you during this time.

He will be missed we loved him very much and look forward to the day we will all be united again. LaVera Potter and Family
