Patriot Guard Riders to stand guard at funeral of Lance Cpl. Daniel Morris

I received a comment from Kathi on my post about Lance Cpl. Daniel Morris who was killed in Iraq February 14 saying she would be with the Patriot Guard Riders at the funeral.

If you don't know anything about these heroes please check out Patriot Guard Riders. Many, if not most, are military veterans, and the honor they pay our fallen war heroes is amazing.

Here is what Kathi wrote at her site. God bless the Patriot Guard Riders.

A PGR Mission Tomorrow for a Fallen Marine

The boyfriend and I will be attending a Patriot Guard Riders mission tomorrow for a fallen Marine from our area, Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris.

February 15, 2006. The Department of Defense announces the death of:
Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris, 19, of Crimora, Va., died Feb. 14 while conducting combat operations in Al Anbar province, Iraq. Morris was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

There is a story on him in our local paper, the Daily News- Record, here
Area Marine Killed In Iraq by David Reynolds
and I found this listing of his obituary from a local blogger
Click here: SWAC Girl: Obituary: Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris

This death hits close to home. A coworker of mine had grandchildren who attended school with this Marine.

Rest in peace, Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris. Prayers are going up for your family and friends, and we will stand with many others to honor you tomorrow.
