A Fallen Hero

Lance Corporal Tyler A. Roads of Burney California died Saturday, July 10th supporting combat operations in Helmand province.  Lance Corporal Roads would have celebrated his 21st birthday on Monday, July 12th.
The Redding Record Searchlight and the L.A. Times  report on Roads life, friends, and family.
For you close readers, I will be posting updates as information comes in regarding services. It is my understanding the Patriot Guard will be present.
I humbly extend my thanks for the Roads family in making the ultimate sacrifice. My Flag is flying half mast in honor of Lance Corporal Roads, as is the Burney Lions Club Flag, and the Huge flag on North Bechelli Lane of the Enterprise Lions Club in Redding California.
Update: Funeral services will be held this Saturday, July 17th at 11 am in Burney, California.
