VMI sending Cadets
This was a post from my Rat on FaceBook.
I pray safe travels to all the cadets going to VT for the funeral of Deriek Crouse in response to the Westboro Baptist Chruch's picket line...
Somewhere between 20 and 30 VMI cadets made the trip down to join the Patriot Guard in defending the honor of Officer Crouse. This was not an official VMI event, so the cadets paid for gas themselves and had to take academic or First Class days (which are typically used to extend a furlough or a weekend pass) to go down.
The Westboro crew didn't end up picketing to the service after all, so the VMI cadets sat with the members of the VT Corps of Cadets during the memorial service.
Here's an article about the service.
Rest in Peace, Officer Crouse. My prayers are with your wife and the five boys you left too soon.
