Of course this isn’t suprising in the least. It is sickening and outrageous however.


The memorial service for PVT Tucker, is scheduled to be held Saturday, July 1 at the following location:

Deschutes County Fairgrounds Expo Center
3800 S.W. Airport Way
Redmond, Oregon

Flags At Half-Staff
Monday, June 26

The memorial service at the Expo Center will be open to the public. A private internment, which is not open to the public, will follow at the Mt. Jefferson Memorial Park Cemetery in Madras.

A small group of people from the Westboro Baptist Church out of Topeka, Kansas have announced their plans to picket the funerals of both Tucker and Menchaca. Members of the church have picketed several soldier funerals in the past.

How To Show Your Support

Cards and letters in show of support to the Tucker family can be sent to the following address:

The Tucker Family
c/o Public Affairs
Oregon Military Dept.
P.O. Box 14350
Salem, OR 97309-5047

Nothing is sacred to these freaks! I suggest if you are in the area to go show your support for our fallen. Perhaps consider joining the Patriot Guard Riders and counter protest these sickos!

The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.

We don’t care what you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a “hawk” or a “dove”. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what your income is. You don’t even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.

1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.

2. Shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.

Well, it may be time for our friendly neighborhood Marine to demonstrate the effects of the M82A1... OK, so that is extreme, but the fact remains these people are not providing the level of respect deserving to the family of our fallen Soldiers.
