While I can find a lot of info on military funerals in general, and have attended a couple, I can't find this. Can someone tell me the exact wording (or if there is no exact wording, the average wording) spoken to the next of kin when the folded flag is presented to them? the "for service to the country" grateful bit.
I'm good to go on generalisms and ceremony, just need the verbage. Thanks. If there's already a post regarding this, let me know and I'll get this outta the way. ^_^
