The Final Salute

“Brothers and Sisters-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 Lester Lee Hutton our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Lester. To Lester 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 Vietam War while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Lester, we commend you for your honorable military service. You are a true patriot, who served your nation and your community 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. GOD Bless you. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, the VFW Comrades of Post 4588 and the Disabled Veterans of DAV Chapter 30 in Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Lester’s family and loved ones.
