RC “Wingman” arrived early at the staging area to coordinate activities with the church and FD. It was a hot and very humid day.
There were members of WWR, PGR, and Enforcers MC (thank you Roscoe, president, Enforcers MC for your clubs support of this family).
Due to the heat, a flag line was established in the church lobby for the family arrival.
At noon our soldier’s father captivated the congregation with his eulogy of his son’s life and the effect of his military service on the family and humanity as a whole.
After services were concluded, KSU for the escort to the South Florida National Cemetery, an 8 mile journey.
?Upon arrival, RC “Wingman” coordinated with cemetery personnel and the riders proceeded to the committal shelter? for interment services.
Flag line was established about the committal shelter periphery.
At the conclusion of military honors by the U.S.army Honor Guard, RC “Wingman” read the WWR U.S.Army prayer.
He then expressed our condolences to the family and presented the father with a boxed WWR challenge coin and a laminated copy of the prayer.
After all family and guests had left the committal shelter the riders were stood down to carry their flag respectfully erect back to their conveyances.
R.I.P. SSGT Etheridge, your service to our country and the world will ALWAYS remain in our hearts and minds.
