On Tuesday, 10 September, I had the honor of attending the arrival of the remains of a true hero in Alexandria. 
Green Beret Army Master Sergeant Jose J. Gonzalez was killed in action during a raid last week in northern Afghanistan. 
He was a father of two and a veteran of seven deployments who had previously been wounded in combat.  His remains were
transported from Dover AFB to Cunningham Funeral Home.  He will be laid to rest at Arlington.
It was a privilege to join my fellow active duty, American Legion and VFW members to salute our fallen brother.
