Marine Lance Corporal Brandon Lara lost his life in the line of duty while serving his country in Iraq. Lara was flown into the Randolph Air Force Base where he was escorted off base, through Universal City, Schertz and to New Braunfels. This video is of the procession from the air force base to New Braunfels. Hundreds of people lined the streets to pay their respects to this fallen hero.

That was a wonderful thing that was done! Remembering that freedom isnt free.
I was good until they rounded the corner & crossed the bridge & fellow solders offered a salute.

God Rest his Heroic Soul!
From a USAF vet & father of Marine, Semper Fi!
Thank you!

Good thing a celebrity pedophile didn't die & become more of a hero story. May he rest in peace.

Amazing. I would like to thank his family for loving and knowing him. I would also like to thank he and all of his fallen brethren for their dedication to their duties and to our nation.


/I got a little misty.
//I got a little angry of the residents of the Toledo, OH (Rossberg, OH) area for allowing a group to boo and protest the funeral procession of my cousin (Sgt. USMC)... I respect the right to free speech, but I honestly have to say I wanted to run over many (read: all) of them with my truck.
