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 Joseph John Silagy, Jr. our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Joseph. And to Joseph 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 the Korean and Vietnam Wars while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Joseph, 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 Joseph's family and loved ones.

Lori, Just want you to know I am thinking of you. I have such nice memories of being with you and Joe when I served parties for you. Take care and know that others share in your sorrow. sincerely, Vicki Potts

Ironically I was thinking about Mr. Silagy about two weeks back. I fondly remember a time when he flew me, along with is lovely wife and a work companion over to DFW in his plane when we all could not get on an AA flight. He insisted I sit up front with him... which of course I loved. Such a nice man - glad I knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Silagy and their sons at this time.
