Escort for Injured Soldier

Posted by Deb Smith on September 27, 2013 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)

We have been asked to escort an injured soldier from Indianapolis Airport to his home in Farmersburg, in.   I need to know if we can have at least 10-12 bikes for this escort.  He will arrive in Indy either on Tues or Wednesday.  Email me at [email protected] or call me at 812-236-4494 or respond on facebook if you can welcome him home.  Thanks, Deb

22 year old Marine from Brazil KIA

Per the funeral director, the soldier is expected to arrive Friday at the Terre Haute Airport. Time not yet known. The family would like for us to escort the body back to Brazil. Not sure yet when the funeral services will be held, but they would like an escort to the burial site also. The family will meet with the funeral director on Monday, so I hope to have more info at the time. We are on the list to be called as information is available.

It is my understanding that the soldier is the nephew of Randy Joe, one of the bartenders at Post 2.

I hope we can make arrangements to provide the family and the soldiers with the honors they deserve. He was 22 years old.

Keep checking facebook for updates or call me....
