  1. I was there when he came home last Saturday at Midway Airport in Chicago. And I was there for his funeral last Tuesday. I am a member of IL Patriot Guard Riders.

  2. My heart breaks, wish we could have been there. We try to attend all the fallen heroes funerals in Minnesota.

    The carnage seem so have no end in sight. We lost many troops already in June
