Lumberton, TX lost a Hero. PFC David Drake, 21 Years Old, was killed in Action fighting in Afghanistan.
He received a Heroes welcome when his casket was flown back to southeast Texas.
The streets were lined with people and the Patriot Guard Riders accompanied the hearse as it made a loop through Beaumont and Lumberton.
I specifically wanted to thank Lumberton ISD for allowing Lumberton Schools to release the students from school to go stand along the road as the casket with fallen soldier David Drake passed by.
That was a great way to honor David Drake and also instill in students GOOD American values of honoring and supporting American Soldiers and the sacrifice that they make when they VOLUNTARILY join the military
