Flag Waving along a military funeral motorcade

Flag Waving along funeral motorcade

Taken in 2006, Bradley County residents lined Ocoee street in Cleveland, TN to show their support of Sgt. David Weir, who had been recently killed in Iraq. These flag wavers lined the street an hour early to see the funeral motorcade of the slain soldier. One of the reasons for the turnout here was to counter a small but high-profile anti-military protest group which came from out of state.

I just happened to be passing through when I saw this, as I was touring US Highway 11 in East Tennessee. Much of this stretch of US11 is the old Lee Hwy, which connected Chattanooga and Knoxville.

I am continually thankful for our brave soldiers who risk their lives to defend our freedom!
