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.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.
