Be Advised that the funeral and interment portion of this mission in San Antonio on Friday is a stand down. Below is a portion of the notification from San Antonio PGR:
Ms. Pena is very, very appreciative of our participation in the recovery mission on Tuesday and wants us for the memorial in San Marcos on Thursday. However, the last week and a half, involving the loss of her only child, has understandably been very overwhelming for her.
The funeral and interment will have a large attendance. She has asked us to not participate on Friday, so that the funeral and the cemetery services can be smaller in scope for the family and friends of Captain Pena..
We will honor her request.
Again, we are still on for Thursday in San Marcos. Please see top of this thread for details.
Thank you for all you do for our fallen warriors.
