Also, the Patriot Guard communiques indicate that they WILL NOT be present at the invitation of one of the family members, although that is not a traditional MO for the PG. The following is pertinent info for the event. Latest info is last.
The PG had earlier been invited by a family member, but late developments have changed the anticipated outcome.
They are "standing down" the mission at the family's request.
I AM EXTREMELY SORRY ABOUT THIS BUT THERE IS NO WAY THIS COULD HAVE BEEN ANTICPATED.
I spoke with the Father last night and again this morning. Slinky spoke with the Father this afternoon. Everything was a go until the funeral home called Slinky and told him that it would be best if we stood down. Therefore, STAND DOWN. CJ, myself, Snap, Slinky and maybe Catfish will still proceed to the staging area to meet with any of the members that already left out. I will remain in Huntsville tomorrow and tomorrow night in case anyone changes their minds. Again, I'm very sorry that this has happend. Dinky Dau (for sure)!
