First, I want to offer my condolences to the family of this young man.

The "reporter" responsible should personally apologize to his family. Your headline is about the community paying their respects, now is the time for you to be respectful. I challenge you to publicly apologize and make the statement that this will NEVER happen again!

Well said Remington. When my brother, and grandson were transported to a cemetary from out of Fort Bragg, the streets and highway were lined with military and law enforcement in full dress. The state police came in and led the procession of cars, as well as had every intersection blocked as we went by. I cannot tell you the pride and peace that filled our hearts as they saluted.Its been several years now, but thinking back litterly gives me chills. God bless this young man who paid the ultimate price for our country.May he rest in peace, and may his family find comfort in the following day to come.
