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 Roy Lynn Pilkinton our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Roy. And to Roy 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 as a fighter pilot first in the U.S. Army Air Corps and then in the U.S. Air Force. Roy, 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 Roy's family and loved ones.

I have been proud, all of my life, for being named after my "Uncle Roy" and my father Curtis Menefee. I can't begin to count how many times I have bragged on Uncle Roy for his accomplishments and for just being a man I could look up to and admire for his strengths and convictions.He is in good company with all our family that had gone to meet the Lord ahead of him. I know the Lord will give strength to my Aunt Amy, Lisa and Amy Lou.
