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 1LT Robert Joseph “R.J.” Hess our Brother-in-Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for “R.J.”. And to “R.J.” it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the supreme sacrifice he made for his country while deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Army. No greater love is shown than a man lay down his life for another. “R.J.”, you gave the last full measure of devotion for what you believed in and fought for. 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 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 “R.J.”'s family and loved ones.

Stephen J. Lavery, Commander, American Legion Post 14
5315 South Lakeshore Drive, Shreveport, LA 71109

John Adams, Commander, VFW Post 2238

Dear Bob and family, I hope that it is of some small comfort to you to know there are many people who are praying for you (people you have not heard from in years like TJ friends). RJ sounds like he was an amazing son, amazing person and an amazing American. My heart is broken for your loss.
