Honoring a Fallen Hero, Who Served Within the Mississippi National Guard

In recognition of our proud American tradition of honorable service which our military men and women have given to their country and our State, we honor a Fallen Hero. Our nation, our state and the National Guard Association of MS (NGAMS) regards the memorializing of its retired military deceased as an honorable and sacred obligation. 

Another great Soldier and Fallen Hero have been released from duty, passed from our ranks on August 11, 2021, and moved on to his heavenly home. First Sergeant (Ret) Troy Everett Seals, a retired member of the MS Army Air National Guard who had served within the MSARNG Military Academy (MMA) and the 185th Aviation Brigade has departed and gone to a better place with our good Lord.

It takes a special person to serve within the military for their country, giving up their family time, comfort, and safety for their country, ultimately for all Americans to enjoy their freedoms, safety, and way of life.  We now applaud you for your service to our country.  A special message from General Douglas McArthur remains applicable today for our servicemen that have passed:  “Old Soldiers never die; they just fade away”.

Rest in Peace Soldier.  We applaud your patriotism and brave efforts in serving our country and your family for their support of your service.  We thank you for your service.  Without your efforts and your families’ support, this country would not stand so boldly, shine so bright and live so free.

You now have earned a rest, so go fly with the Angels, go rest high on that mountain; your work on earth is done.  Go to heaven a-shoutin’ Love for the Father and the Son.

The obituary is pending.

Visitation:  Monday, August 16, 2021, 10-11 a.m.; Natchez Trace Funeral Home, Madison, MS;  Funeral services follow at 11 a.m.
