A Fallen Soldier Honored

Cpl. Shawn Hensel
This flag was about 12 blocks down from where we were, it was huge.
Firefighter Greg Ulery waits to follow the procession. In the meantime he was blocking off traffic from the side roads.
The Procession
Logansport lost a soldier last week in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Shawn Hensel died Aug 14th when he was caught in enemy crossfire. He was 20 years old and newly married. His funeral was today. What seemed like the whole town gathered along Market St. with flags in hand to honor him as the procession made it's way through our small town. I had never had to experience anything like this before. Remember to pray for our troops.
