Spc. Jason M. Weaver, 22, of Anaheim, Calif. PGR 03/14/11

Spc. Jason M. Weaver, 22, of Anaheim, Calif., died March 3 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit using an improvised explosive device. He was assigned to the 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. 
We meet at the Katella Deli in Los Alamitos for our mission briefing and ride orientation.  It's a fairly large group from all over.  Many we know from our regular Wednesday flag ceremony in the City of Orange and some from previous PGR rides.

Standing out in the hot sun I had to go sit down and take a few minute break, and we did have one member get rather light headed and paramedics rushed in and took care of her.

Family really have a tough time dealing with this, naturally.

The motorcade heads past two schools with the entire student body standing along the fences as we pass by.  Forest Lawn is just 3-4 miles up the road where we provide a flag line as the casket is carried inside.

Additional photos provided by Johney Harper.  Too many of these services for sure.
