The valor and selflessness shown by combat heroes are deserving of the honor and gratitude of their nation for the contributions they have made. Sadly, as time goes on, these brave men and women just fade into the background, and it looks as if people have forgotten about them and erased them from their memory altogether.
On the day when Ralph Lambert, a veteran of the United States Air Force who had survived to the age of 94, died away on February 8, 2022, neither his family nor his closest friends were present to say their last goodbyes to him. He had reached the age of 94.
It appeared as though, despite the many years he had spent serving his country, he would be laid to rest in Louisiana without anyone ever learning about his brave actions or giving him the appropriate farewell and homage he deserved. This was despite the fact that he had spent many years serving his country.
Jordan Marks, who is the head coach of the baseball team at Menard High School in Alexandria, Louisiana, was aware that he needed to take action in reaction to the conditions that were now unfolding.
After discovering the devastating facts of the veteran’s loss, including the fact that he would be buried without a ceremony being given in his honor, Marks selected six members of his team to attend the veteran’s burial and carry his coffin. These individuals also attended the funeral of the soldier.
As the baseball coach has stated to his students, the goal is to teach them how to play the game of life as well as the game of baseball. It is very important to Marks that his players, who are all war veterans like Lambert, be prepared to help and serve the community.
As one would watch out for a teammate while playing, Coach Marks urges his players to become engaged in their communities in the same manner that he is involved in his own community.
As a result, he spoke about Lambert with his squad, and as a consequence, six seniors agreed to attend to the burial ceremony and carry the coffin of the veteran who served in the United States Air Force.
Jacob Giordano, one of the six seniors who carried Lambert’s casket during the emotional and meaningful ceremony, said afterward that they regarded it as an honor to have been chosen to be Lambert’s pallbearers. The ceremony was held to memorialize Lambert.
Because of their kind and caring natures, the young guys have garnered acclaim not just from people in their local community but also from those who use the internet.
