San Antonio Confirmed Mission
Sgt. Thomas Bohall – Army KIA – 07 & 08 June 2011 – San Antonio
The Patriot Guard has been invited by the family to stand and honor Sgt. Thomas Bohall (Army). Sgt. Bohall died of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device in Kandahar province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to the 4th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Ky. Please remember that Sgt. Bohall was one of six from his unit that were killed during this attack, and we need to keep the other families in our thoughts as well as we stand and honor one of our own. This mission will consist of a recovery from Randolph Air Force Base to Porter Loring North on Tuesday, and the funeral service at Cornerstone Church, with interment to follow at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery on Wednesday. If available, please try to attend to honor one of our local fallen heroes and support the family during their time of loss. Thank you.
