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 Bobbie Jewel Bass our Sister in Arms. To her family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Bobbie. And to Bobbie it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank her for the loyal and dedicated service she rendered to her country over a 40 year period while serving with the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force. No greater love and patriotism is shown than a woman devote her life in service to her country. Bobbie, you are an honored Army and Air Force Veteran 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.
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 Bobbie's family and loved ones.
