I dont know this individual or the person that passed, but I DO KNOW he deserve our respect to have a peaceful ceremony! Let all gather to counter protest PEACEFULLY, to honor this man. PLEASE SHARE!
From Stephen Zapata
But anyways this past Veterans Day my boy SFC Thompson was killed here in Cali in a motorcycle accident. His ashes are being escorted back to Iowa where he's from. We received word from there, that westboro baptist church is planning on picketing there. I wish i could be there but can't. I'm asking if any of our grunts that live there if they can go and show sum support. I'm not asking for any of us to go there and beat these shit heads up or anything "even though I know they deserve it". His funeral will be held council bluffs Iowa dec 8th 1:15pm St. John's Lutheran church. I appreciate any and all support.
For those who have not had a chance to stand and protect our fallen Heroes, bring your flags, dress warm, normally we line the roads and surround the entrance to the church to protect the family from these... well anyway, Patriot Guard Riders will be lining up at the Legion and parading to the church. All are welcome! We will be beginning to line the sidewalks about 12:30.
