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.

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.

Biden Demands that Americans Snitch on their ‘Radicalized’ Neighbors

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous.

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous. Biden is demanding that Americans be on the look-out for “radicalized” behavior and to call the police when they think they see it. Of course, by “radicalized,” he means being conservative and white. In a recent conversation with the press, a senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it spreads. The teleconference discussion was posted to the White House website. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said according to the White House posting. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility. “This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends, or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official added. But instead of Islamic terror, Biden thinks we have to worry about evil white people. As Breitbart News reminded us all: Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.” The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization. “Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the…
