Join Your Community to Honor the Life of a Fallen Hero Today

by Deirdre Blake posted Jun 27 2014 11:12AM
Between 2 and 3:30 p.m. local resident April Bartlett Deane has organized a Facebook event to help us honor the return of Fallen Marine David Stewart back home. More than 30 people have already said they'll come bearing flags, posters or just their American spirit to honor the the life of a Hero. They'll be lining Cool Springs Road in Stafford to show their respect. If you're are not in that area, feel free to line up anywhere along Rt. 3 into Stafford, Butler Road, and North Rt. 1 up to Stafford's Covenant Funeral Home. 

This is the event post that started it all. Okay, we would like for everyone to meet at The Fraternal-Order Eagles, 21 Cool Springs Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22405 at 2:00!

Starting at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, we would like to line up as many "people" as possible and work our way down to Rt. 3!

Please consider the weather and bring chairs, water, sunblock, bug spray.

We will have crayons, banner paper, and some paint for the little ones.

Please bring your own flags and signs!

We (Rita and myself) are aiming to be at the Eagles around 1:30.

Please know that according to the update from Stafford Sherrifs Office, they plan on arriving in Stafford County around 2:30...they may arrive a little later or sooner. We just don't know at this time. Once they arrive, I wouldn't expect it to last longer than 30 minutes.

According to an update from one of the participant riders there were 200+ bikes this morning at the rest area.

Pray all of our riders have a safe trip and see you soon!!

Bring the kids, family, any and everyone!

I've also been informed that there maybe a set up at Fas Mart Rt. 1

The bulk of the route will be Rt. 301 South through MD, crossing the Harry W. Nice Bridge at approx. 1400 (2:00 PM). From there, Rt. 3 west to Cool Springs Rd, Butler Rd, and then Rt.1 North to Courthouse Rd in Stafford. Stafford/Fredericksburg Area folks please encourage people that are not riding to stage anywhere along the route in Stafford County.”
