Hal Ray Wall, United States Army veteran

On February 1, 2012, a memorial service was conducted at the Columbarium of the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen, Texas for Hal Ray Wall who had proudly served his country in the United States Army.

In attendance for the service were the Patriot Guard Riders of the CENTEX region of Texas.

The Riders formed a line of American flags around the committal shelter as final prayers were offered by the family's minister.

The service commenced with the playing of the song, "Old Rugged Cross" and concluded with the song, "Amazing Grace."

Between the musical renderings, the minister read from the scripture, John 14, 1-6 and Revelation 20, verse 4.

After the final prayer, the United States Army Honor Guard rendered military honors. The bugler played taps. The American flag that had rested against the cremains, was carefully unfolded and refolded into a tight triangle, and presented to Debby, Hal's dear wife, on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for his honorable and faithful service.

The cremains of Hal Wall were buried at the base of the hill, and the American flag flew at half-staff above.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife and a host of dear family and friends.
