We will rally at the funeral home for the viewing on July 2nd.  This is a NINE (9) hour visitation at the Gary L. Kaufman Funeral Home.  Try and take a few hours out of your day and join the flag line.  No one is expected to stand the entire 9 hours.  Please arrive 30 minutes prior start of viewing times.  We will also rally at the church, where we will stand the flag line until completion of church services.  Interment will be at ANC at a later date.  Please bring your hand held 3x5 flags for the flags lines at the funeral home and church.  A large number of mourners are expected both days.  Please dress accordingly, pre-hydrate and bring water.  
The weather forecast for Monday and Tuesday calls for extremely HOT weather, with temperatures approaching 100 degrees both days.  Since both days are flag lines only, please do not hesitate to drive your car.  Come for as long as you can, or stay for as long as you can.

A mission plan for ANC services will be posted later.
Please remember, our mission is to respect and honor this fallen marine and his family and friends.
