Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of LCpl Joey Braun. May God help you though this difficult time and sorrow. Know your son was and is a Hero to us all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. He will never be forgotten.

Rest Safely and Securely in God's Loving Arms, Joey.

Going home, going home,
I'm just going home.
Quiet-like, slip away-
I'll be going home.
It's not far, just close by;
Jesus is the Door;
Work all done, laid aside,
Fear and grief no more.
Friends are there, waiting now.
He is waiting, too.
See His smile! See His hand!
He will lead me through.

Morning Star lights the way;
Restless dream all done;
Shadows gone, break of day,
Life has just begun.
Every tear wiped away,
Pain and sickness gone;
Wide awake there with Him!
Peace goes on and on!
Going home, going home,
I'll be going home.
See the Light! See the Sun!
I'm just going home.

Standing by...

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: 1. Jesus Christ. 2. The American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your Freedom.

"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your Government when it deserves it" -Mark Twain

Ride in peace JonD, Debbie, Mike, Irish, Kat, Ron, Wheelmaster and Chgo Jim.

My prayers and thoughts go out to the Braun family at this time of great sorrow.  Please accept my families condolences and prayers as you go through this most difficult time.  Your loved one will be missed, however not forgotten in the hearts that cared for him.

Please God...Grant them courage, when times seem bleak.  Grant them strength when they feel weak.  Grant them comfort, when they feel all alone.  And most of all, God, Please bring them ALL home.

May God take Joey in His arms and may He comfort his family and friends.

Thank you for your dedication to serve this great nation.
May God bless you for your act of selflessness.
You are truly a hero to us all.
