The funeral of Spc. Joshua Tomlinson will be held today. Take a minute at 2pm, wherever you are and whatever you are doing, to say a prayer or in your own way to show your personal respect and support.
If you are going to Minden for the service, remember that the family has asked that there be no signs other than flags or blank signs to hold in front of the protesters.
Today should be about Spc. Tomlinson and honoring his life and service. Any dark clouds of protest should be ignored.
Remember Spc. Tomlinson today, his family, and on this Memorial Day weekend, all the others who have given their lives in service.
