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 Dr. Carter B. Norman our Brother-in-Arms and fellow Legionnaire. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Carter. And to Carter 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 while serving in the U.S Army and for his many years of dedicated service to his community and the American Legion. Carter you are a true patriot, a great supporter of the American Legion and a wonderful comrade. 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 1,309 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Carter’s family and loved ones.
