      Interesting comment Alfredo. I recall him as my CO at 2d AnphibRecon company at Geiger same time frame. I met him again (1973+/-) in the airport lounge at Howard AFB as he was headed to DomRep as CO there. He actually remembered my name!

      Armed Forces personnel of any country deserve full respect during their service, after retirement and when they leave this world for eternal peace as they safeguard their homeland from internal and external threats. May General’s soul rest in peace.

    32. R TJ

      Ironic some would say that its the 0311 on the ground producing the effectiveness of the Marine Corps but their funerals last minutes where officers who sent them to their death are honored as forever lasting heroes when they never stood a night of guard, a IED patrol with nothing but your body armor.

      President Eisenhower was reinstated to Army upon his death. Actually given Military Officer funeral, laid in serviceman casket, wearing his Army uniform and was buried as General.

      1. Chuck's poke

        @C Eng Difference in this situation was that after leaving Office, President Kennedy reactivated his commission and he was given 5th Star and military status was made active at that time post WH. Only he and George Washington have ever made rank of 5 Star.

      2. C Eng

        He was buried as a veteran as all were entitled.

    52. aryanscience

      Was this man a racist? I only counted 8 Africans in the troops.

      1. aryanscience

        @Ruth Brower Your Whiteness is showing! Move to Georgia.

      2. 大叔

        The General is not but you are. Only those that are racist like you will count how many Africans in the troops. The rest of us only see (American) US troops .

      3. Judith Johnson


      4. C Eng

        You are the one who see the world in your narrow racist mind! We have too many like you in our country and that is the problem.

      5. Devil Dog Crewchief

        Not only does your comment make you the racist but stupid as well....

    53. roger mcshane

      General when you get to heaven you will meet a Marine guarding the gates he is my brother my Marine as I was also 67 to 72, Semperfi sir you have a special place in our hearts all Marines and former Marines salute you.

    54. Leslie Hall

      The marching is a lot better than usual

    55. Thom Roddy

      I had met the General a number of times when I worked for Admiral James D. Watkins, CNO at the time, but it was a number of years later I saw him for the last time at Washington National Airport (Reagan). The General was waiting in line to check-in for his flight, and it was the first time I saw him as a civilian citizen. We talked for a few members and he assured me he remembered me, but he met thousands of folks during his career. When I think of a Marine or meet a Marine, he's the yardstick I measure them against.

    56. John Leonard

      RIP General ! Your country will miss you.

    60. Tony Danza

      It's so sad when you think about it that so many people in the military have died in war like the soldiers who died on D-Day in 1944 in Omaha beach in France as they came ashore they got gunned down by Nazi machinegun fire while others made it back to the United States alive and had a family and lived out the rest of their lives while the dead are buried in foreign soil not knowing that those who went to war that they would never see their love ones again

      5. Ms. Mary Ellen Casey

        Let. name is Harvey Lagasse and he served as a pilot in the Army National Guard. The other relative was a cousin on my Mothers side and he served in the Navy.

    63. Semper Fi

      General PX Kelly was my Commandant when I was in Grenada 83 and then Beirut, Lebanon from 83-84.I was a tough time for him et all after we had such a mass casualty (241 and 220 were US Marines) due to a terrorist blowing himself at the Marine temp barracks on Oct 23rd, 1983. My CG at Lejeune was General Grey who I saw on the 30th memorial at Jville, NC.

        The pallbearers are power lifters. They are selected for strength and then they are made stronger so they can carry any coffin shoulder high.

      "Onward Christian Soldiers" is a good tune for a military man. Arthuir Sullivan( as in Gilbert and Sullivan) really knew how to make music.

      1. Denise Eulert

        @piedmontatl I assume the dude was Christian, if they chose that music, so the choice was appropriate. They weren't spotlighting. You are either anti-religious or anti-Christian for a post like that.

      2. piedmontatl

        Nope. There are all kinds of religions, should not spotlight just one.

    69. DM McHugh

      Why do the soldiers touch their shoulders when folding the flag (see starting at 39: 30) ? The folding of the flag is sad - and magnificent: it moves me to tears whenever I see it. The soldiers fold the flag with precision, dedication and patriotism. These are standards we should all look up to. General Kelley, rest in peace.

      1. adam morales

        To absolutely to make sure that it is folded correctly and tight. The Marines use the shoulder point method to alert the rest of honor guards on team that the flag is the process of being folded and that everyone on team needs be to holding tightly on flag to smooth out the creases and sure theirs no bulges, and is tightly flat on all 3 points to presented to their Love ones.

      General PX Kelly was the Commandant when I was in the Service....in 1993 after I had gotten out, he was the speaker at the Marine Corps Ball in Tampa Florida. I went up to meet him at 9 months pregnant and he touched my stomach and he said,"Oh Another Future Marine I See"...lol....He was a great Man..RIP

      I don’t know why, I can see Army, Navy, Air Force funeral services all day and nothing. I see a USMC service and I’m done and choked up. It’s probably got something to do with my father being a Marine and knowing this is to far off in my future, and I dread those words more than most anything “On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation...” I do not look forward to seeing this for myself, but then again who does?

    79. Alfredo Portillo

      General Kelly was my company commander at 2nd Force Recon when he was a captain and I was a corporal. This was 1958. RIP Sir, Semperfi.

    83. H. Nguyen

      I love the military but the treatment between officers and enlisted men when it comes to burials at Arlington national cemetery is disgraceful. Every soldier that dies for his/her country deserves a full military honor. The fact that officers get a full honor burial and enlisted men get standard honor burial has always rubb me the wrong way.

      1. 大叔

        @C Eng you have such patient to explain to those people who refused to understand. Their question for me sound like why passing governor didn't get funeral service of a passing president (which most understand the reason), I have seen Nguyen posting the same question in clips from others youtuber; and found others patiently explaining and yet he/she still continuing posting this questions LOL.....

      2. Lesyk Konecky

        @Fight Censorship Fight Globalism that may be true, but generals still deserve more than enlisted

      3. Fight Censorship Fight Globalism

        @Lesyk Konecky Yes, I was. I was also born and raised on military bases. Enlisted men deserve better burials than they get, period.

      4. Lesyk Konecky

        @Fight Censorship Fight Globalism that has nothing to do with this, generals lead men, they’re not grunts out in the trenches. Were you even in the military?
