Well the year is almost over and many of us got to see the reburial of Gen Forrest and his wife may they FINALLY REST IN PEACE.

 This was the second reburial I have attended, the first was in 1997 as the Savannah camp made arrangements to send

 the body of Private Benjamin Franklin DeVane back to Polk County, Florida. The burial caused traffic outside the

cemetery on I-4 to come to a stop as everyone got out of their cars to watch. A news helicopter was launched to see the

accident that closed the road. Way back then the SCVMC may have had 300 members as Greg Kalof is #300, but now

we can line the driveway to pay respects to the General, don’t know the number but it is over 4100.

With that said it is my pleasure to edit your reports and see you riding with the billboard on your back. So with that said

 have a wonderful Thanksgiving and know I am thankful for all my brothers. May God Bless you over the holidays, don’t eat to much for the holidays.

I would like to thank all of our reporters from the Confederation for their contributions to the Cracker.

Rest in peace brothers, we know you are in a better place and one day we shall meet again.

Saturday October 2nd. the men of the cavalry from all over the state met in Pasco County to help install 6 headstones.

I want to personally thank everyone for their help, without these men and women this could not be done. We have to date set

 35 markers from Desoto County to Hernando County with more on the way. I also had the privilege of swearing in Sean McFall

to the Mech. Cav. Sean is also our 15th Brigade Commander Southwest Florida.
