Charlie Daniels honored at memorial service
Country Music Hall of Fame musician Charlie Daniels received military honors at a memorial service in Tennessee on Wednesday night.
The country music icon, who penned the hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," died at the age of 83 on Monday after a stroke, according to his publicist.
The singer, guitarist and fiddler was also an honorary brigadier general in the Tennessee State Guard and founded the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center at Middle Tennessee State University, officials for the school said.
Tennessee's adjutant general, Army Maj. Gen. Jeff Holmes, was joined by the university's president and senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives to render the military honors at the outdoor service at a Mount Juliet funeral home.
The ceremony began with a flyover of Army Blackhawk helicopters. Holmes and university representatives later presented American flags to Daniels' wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels Jr.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee delivered remarks and country musician Trace Adkins, among others, performed.
WWII-era planes honor Vera Lynn with fly-by
World War II-era aircraft flew over the late singer Vera Lynn's village in southeastern England on Friday, offering a final tribute to the "Forces' Sweetheart" who buoyed the morale of Britain during the conflict and beyond.
The planes flew past Lynn's beloved village of Ditchling, where crowds lined the narrow streets to pay tribute to her before a private funeral. Members of the military walked alongside, offering a guard of honor as the cortege passed.
Lynn, who serenaded the nation with sentimental favorites such as "We'll Meet Again" and "The White Cliffs of Dover," died June 18. She was 103 and enjoyed popularity that endured long after the war ended.
Ahead of the day, a giant portrait of Lynn was beamed onto the White Cliffs of Dover to commemorate her life.
