    Last week we lost our K9 Police officer when he was deployed with his unit of the National Guard, over to Afghanastan. Today was his funeral. All, and I mean ALL of the surrounding communities came together to pay respect for our fallen hero. A neighboring town brought over their fire trucks, stationed them across from each other to raise their ladders, which they hung a HUGE flag in honor of Sgt. Mycal Prince. Hundreds of bikers paid tribute to him, along with ALL the surrounding officers, from the police, the sheriffs office, fire departments, ambulances. Seems our whole town shut down for this tribute. So many people came together. One little old man was even giving out little flags to all the kids that didn't have one. Was truly awesome.

    God Bless Mycal's family, and although words are not not near as good as loosing your life, Thank You for giving so much so that we may have freedom in the United States.

    Enough credit is never given to a fallen hero. Prayers for the hero's family.

    I think there has been 12 Oklahoma soldiers killed since July 29th. Seems like almost every night you about another one. So sad.

    It was sad about Mycal's demise. We lost another one from OKC yesterday. Too many lives have been lost! I pray for the men & women over in other Countries daily. And I Thank the Veterans that have fought for us as well.

    I hate to hear of so many of our brave young men & women dying so far from home. And in a war that shouldn't be happening.
    God Bless Mycal.

    The 13th as of last night, from Southwest OKC. My husband attended one of the funerals in Edmond recently. The turn out was huge. The so called church, Westboro Baptist, (not like any Baptist church I have attended) was there protesting but was kept away from the family and route. The city of Edmond directed traffic through a different way from where they were allowed to set up the protest. It is beyond my understanding WHY they would do this. CRUEL!

    Personally, anyone protesting a military funeral should be sent directly to war. Would sure put a stop to it.
