did any of you guys here recently about a town that found out they were coming to protest a funeral and they figured out what hotel they were staying at and the PD and FD just so happened to block every road leading away from that hotel, they never made it to the funeral. that kind of stuff is happening more and more to those pieces of shit. only a matter of time until someone opens fore on them. the day that happens i will clap and cheer.

No i didn't hear about that. Shame it wouldn't happen here, to small of a town, they could walk, unless they are staying at the next town over. I know my dad might have to work traffic control tomorrow..maybe that's what they are planning. I'll be right there with ya cheering the day they get caught in a rain of lead.

Contact your local VFW or American Legion & let them know what those shits are up to. Hopefully they can get some people there. How sad for his child & family.

VFW, American Legion, and AmVets are already going to be there. I heard the General of the Army is here tonight to issue some awards, maybe he'll be here tomorrow to. Local PD, Sheriff, and State Police are also going to be here.

Block them every way you can. Unfortunately, as much as these people piss me off, it is their right to protest. Regardless of how much it is in poor taste and a complete lack in consideration of others.

I would turn a blind eye to any "accidents" they might have...

It's over....never seen so many Law Enforcement officers in one place. They had it pretty well locked down. No protesters showed up. There had to be 50-75 Patriot Guardsman. It went overall pretty smooth.

Very good to hear that . May He rest in Peace with top Honors He deserves along the rest of the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for Us .

Nothing lower in this world than to Berate another human being to further personal interests .

Loud voices against make it all worth while to show you that folks still care about Brave souls . Don't let a few nut cases change your opinion ........

Awesome. I wonder why they didn't show up. It isn't like them to give up an opportunity to be duchbags. Maybe someone 'took care of them'.

That's what we are kind of thinking. They were up in local businesses last night and the type of tightish knit community we are, and as rallied together as we have been through out this event, i'm thinking they maybe got the hint.

He is in my thoughts and prayers. My gf is in the air force, so this is an item that hits closer to home, as well as I had a cousin killed in Iraq. I thank all veterans, past, present, living and dead for the sacrifices they made for my freedom. With out them we may be speaking Japanese, or German, or with British accents. I am an American and damn proud of it. The soldiers that serve our country to an invaluable service, for low pay, crappy conditions, and less time spent with family, but they are all some of the bravest and best people to have around in life. Thank his family from all of us here at FRF, and God Speed to him in the afterlife, for he has earned his place in Heaven.

A local couple made a pretty awesome tribute video for Brian.
