STUNNING: Veteran’s Ashes Discovered on Construction Site, Returned to Family

God surely had his hand on this situation.



When construction worker Shane Hanna was hard at work, he encountered something amazing that would set an inspiring chain of events in motion.

Among a pile of trash and rubble in a worksite dumpster, the United States Navy’s emblem caught Hanna’s eye. Right away, he knew it was something deeply important.

His hunch was correct, and the item turned out to be an urn containing the ashes of Ronald Lee Pruitt, a Navy veteran. Hanna was committed to doing the right thing, so he hopped in and rescued the urn.

“I realized this was an urn, so there’s no way I was leaving it in the dumpster,” Hanna explained to WGAL. “Especially because it had a Navy SEAL insignia on it.”

Of course, Hanna didn’t stop at simply rescuing the urn. He had to find its rightful home, and it became his mission to do so.

Hanna quickly sought the help of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post in his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Thankfully, the VFW was eager to help. According to Post Commander Dwayne Mackenzie, VFW officials were able to locate Barbara Dixon, Pruitt’s sister, over in Delaware.

“I found his obituary and our post quartermaster did some research and actually found the funeral home that had cremated him,” Mackenzie said in a statement to WGAL.

When Dixon learned of the fate of her brother’s ashes, she hit the road and made the three hour trip to Pennsylvania to collect the urn right away. “It’s a miracle that all these people went above and beyond to find me,” she rejoiced.

“He was a real sweetheart [who] died too young,” Dixon said, remembering her brave brother. According to his obituary, Ronald Lee Pruitt died of cancer in 1996 at the age of 41.

Just how his remains found their way into a dumpster so far from home remains a bit of a mystery. WGAL noted that his ashes had originally gone to his other sister, but she died just a few years later.

Dixon was amazed at the work of “guardian angels” she credits with her brother’s discovery and was thrilled to finally be able to “put him in a proper place.”

For their part, the Lancaster VFW saw to it that Pruitt was properly honored, and they conducted a ceremony in his honor when returning the urn to Dixon.

Pruitt will finally be interred at his final resting place in a veterans cemetery in Delaware, WGAL concluded.

While it might be shocking to discover that anyone would have ever thrown this hero’s ashes in the trash to begin with, God surely had his hand on the situation and saw to it that Pruitt found his way home.

Save conservative media!


Schiff Knew About ‘Bounties’ On US Soldiers, But Stayed Silent & Did Not Tell Congress


John Salvatore



California Democrat Adam Schiff has to be one of the sneakiest, most conniving people in all of Congress – and that’s saying something, obviously. For example, the radically far-left congressman knew the Trump campaign never colluded with Russia, yet continued to push the conspiracy in order to continually target the president. Not only that, but the guy knew about “bounties” but said nothing. What is he thinking? Check this out, via The Federalist: Top committee staff for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, were briefed in February on intelligence about Russia offering the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan, but he took no action in response to the briefing, multiple intelligence sources familiar with the briefing told The Federalist. The intelligence was briefed to Schiff’s staff during a congressional delegation, or CODEL, trip to Afghanistan in February. Schiff, who has acknowledged President Donald Trump was never briefed on the so-called intelligence, has thus far refused to disclose that his staff was personally briefed. The revelation raises serious questions that Schiff is once again politicizing, and perhaps even deliberately misrepresenting, key data for partisan gain. Continued: Asked by a reporter Tuesday if he had any knowledge of the Russia story prior to the New York Times report, Schiff said “I can’t comment on specifics.” LOOK: Here are clearer pictures of the letter… For your viewing pleasure, here’s some classic Schiff nonsense… Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews wants Schiff to get into the 2020 presidential race. That’s how desperate they are for anybody other than Joe Biden. WATCH: Reactions: Schiff clearly represents everything wrong with ungrateful Americans today. And it’s sad to see.

NFL to Play ‘Black National Anthem’ Before All Week 1 Season Openers (Details)

The what what…what?

John Salvatore



If there’s a “black national anthem,” does that mean there’s a “white national anthem?” Liberals would obviously say the national anthem is a white national anthem – but they’re just being ridiculous. How can the NFL possibly think this is a good move? How does this move the needle? Will MLB and the NBA soon follow? From ESPN: “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league’s discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday. The song would be performed before “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the source said. The NFL’s season opener is scheduled for Sept. 10, with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans. REACTIONS:
