As a member of the San Francisco Sheriff's Dept. Honor Guard, I met the funeral escort at Duggan's Mortuary and helped honor PFC Leonard's arrival. He was escorted by Daly City PD and a large number of motorcycle escorts from Warrior Watch, who all honored his arrival with U.S. flags, salutes, and a dignified procession into Duggan's.
The U.S. Army escort, Sgt. Alvin Givens, faithfully accompanied the remains all the way from Hawaii to SFO. He executed his solemn duty with precision and compassion. Well done.
My father, 1st Marines, was heavily WIA after Inchon. He made it home. Welcome home, PFC Leonard. We've missed you.
