My husband and I attended the visitation on 6/21/10 and the funeral on 6/22/10 as members of the
Patriot Guard Riders to stand in honor of this local fallen Hero.
The threatened "uninvited guests" (WBC) did NOT appear, thank goodness.....however, the local community Did appear, along with motorcycle riders from various clubs besides the PGR......I believe there were also riders from the Proud American Riders group, Veteran Riders , and Rolling Thunder and all came to shield the family if necessary from protestors, and to show respect.
The photos we took are Here
It was a terribly sad day, and an honor to stand for this local young man who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to his country.
We continue to keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
