To encourage and fortify relationships between military service members, veterans, their families, their friends, and their Country; to nurture the path of communication for everyone, ensuring that no one is alone or left behind; and proving that we have not, are not, and will never forget the nobility of their sacrifices.

A Fallen Hero Laid To Rest

Picture By Christine Boyd

On Friday, July 16, 2010 Marine Corporal Daniel Dambrowski accompanied Lance Corporal Tyler A. Roads from Dover Air Force Base, Delaware home to Burney, California. More than 200 people met the plane at Redding Airport. Approximately 200 vehicles followed the hearse for as the procession drove 90 minutes down Highway 299 to Burney. Law enforcement officers estimated the crowd along Burney's Main Street at 2,500, many of whom held flags and signs of support for the Roads family. You can see footage of Burney welcoming home their Son and Hero here.  You can see a wonderful slide show here. The Marine Vigil can be seen here and the service can be viewed here. 

Lance Corporal Roads sacrifice, and that of his family will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service.
