As I prepare my bike for this solemn occasion,  I recall doing the same just a little over a month ago.  That time was for a much happier day for Joe Braun and family.  May the memories of happier times help ease the pain of today and tomorrow for the family and friends of Joe.  Please know that his service and sacrifice will never be forgotten by his adopted WWR family, along with his great smile and happiness and confidence we all saw and felt when we met him just last month.

Rest in peace Marine, we have the watch now....

From the Halls of Montezuma,                         
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of UNITED STATES MARINES.


Our flag's unfurled to every breeze,
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job --
The UNITED STATES MARINES.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By UNITED STATES MARINES.


Joey, your watch is over and you may
                      STAND DOWN!
You have a new duty to watch over us
And guard Heaven’s streets.
My heart goes with you Marine..
                                  Sgt. Otto
        





To those who died, Honor and Eternal Rest
To those still in bondage,
Remembrance and Hope
To those who returned, Gratitude and Peace.

Mission Joe Braun may be complete today,  but will never leave my memory.  What a beautiful family and a fitting tribute to a fallen Marine, son, brother, fiance, friend, hero.

Rest in Peace Joe Braun.

We here on the East Coast have had a couple of these where we welcomed or honored a hero, only to say farewell  a short time later.  These hurt more than others sometimes because you get to know them on a personal basis. Looking at his picture and putting a face with the name has hit us hard.  Our most sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of this proud American hero.
From all of us in the Garden State of New Jersey, Rest in Peace Joe Braun.
