COL Jack O. Forgy USA (Ret.), beloved AWON member and researcher was inurned
with Military Honors. The service was held at the Ft. Myer Old Post Chapel.
Army troops marching to the Old Chapel on Fort Meyer in honor of Jack. They remained outside with the band and then marched into Arlington Cemetery from the Fort Meyer gate to the columbarium, which was on the opposite side of the cemetery from Fort Meyer.
The Caisson was accompanied by the Honor Guard.

arrive at the Old Chapel, Fort Meyer.
After arrival at the columbarium, the riderless horse with boots reversed in stirrups (as well as a sword) stood nearby, and the firing party is visible in the background.
