Full Military Ceremony for my Hero

Its 3:13am and I can't stop crying... My step-dad, a man who loved me like his own, a man that I loved with all my heart passed away about 3 hours ago.
Ben Villarreal Jr. was a great man. A retired Army Veteran that proudly served our country for 35 years. He served in the front lines in the Vietnam war as An Airborne Ranger, and retired as a Command Sergeant Major (CSM), the highest rank an enlisted soldier could reach without Cadet School.
He was a proud father, a loving husband, devoted PaPa, strong as an Ox and a man I will love forever.
Ben's wish was to be buried at Fort Sam Houston with his Army buddies, and to have a full Military Ceremony. Something he undoubtedly deserves.

Hooah! MasterJumper....See you in the Skies
