CWO3 Timothy D. Brimer, United States Army Ret.

Interment services, with full military honors, were held on March 1, 2011 at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery, Killeen, Texas, for Chief Warrant Officer 3 Timothy D. Brimer. He was a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars and retired from the United States Army after more than twenty years of honorable service to his country.

In attendance for the services were the Patriot Guard Riders who formed a line of American flags along the front of the committal shelter during the ceremony.

Captain Parks of the United States Army Chaplain Corps said the final prayers, recited the 23rd Psalms and concluded with:

“Forasmuch as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.”

The Army detail of five rifles fired three volleys of fire, representing Duty, Honor and Country. The Army bugler then played taps.

The Army Honor Guard folded the American flag that draped the gun metal gray casket into the traditional triangle, and passed it ceremoniously to an Army Captain. He presented the flag to Timothy’s dear wife of fifty two years, Unja, on behalf of the President of the United States, the United States Army and a grateful nation as thanks for Timothy’s many years of faithful service to his country.

CWO3 Timothy D. Brimer was then laid to rest on the gentle slope of the cemetery as the American flag flew at half-staff at the top of the hill in his honor.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife and his son.
