Funeral Ceremony for

Kenneth Earl Bramlett

Mr. Bramlett was a decorated Marine veteran of four major invasions in World War II.  His wish was to receive a military funeral, but his family was told that no bugler was available to play "Taps," as so many WWII veterans have passed away recently in addition to the service members who have lost their lives in the current war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Bramlett's family appealed to local radio personality Kim "The Kimmer" Peterson, himself a Vietnam War Marine veteran.  The Kimmer made an appeal on his radio show and, as always, the Marines came to the rescue,   provided an honor guard and bugler and fulfilled Mr. Bramlett's wish.  A bagpipe player played "Amazing Grace."  It was a beautiful ceremony.  As a result of The Kimmer's announcement, people (like me) who did not have the pleasure of knowing Mr. Bramlett personally came from all over to pay their respects to this fallen hero.
