A great thank you to all those who attended the funeral of Corporal Gerrick Watkins ...today i saw a sight i had never seen before.... The people of Texas are probably the most patriotic i have ever met! they recieved us with open arms and offered us a place to stay, food and anything we could want while we are here for the funeral of our brother..
Today, March 15, 2013 was his funeral at the Dallas Forth Worth National Cemetery.... The most interesting part, was our journey their.... We were escorted by the dallas sherif department, they closed down streets, even highways. Through out the entire route from the church to his final resting place, i saw people on the side of the street drop what they were doing face us and put their hands over their hearts,veterans saluting, drivers pulled over turned their headlights on and put their hands over their hearts, ....even though they had never met CPL Watkins they new a Marine had died and they payed their respect as we drove by
