The nut jobs from Westboro Church are planning to disrupt the funeral of a fallen Marine in Nashville on Monday and Patriot Guard who are a national motorcycle group are in need of supporters on Motorcycles to help maintain the dignity and respect this Marine's funeral deserves. They can tell you about it better then I can so the links are below. I'll be out there on my Tiger and hope some fellow Members can come help out too!

Tennessee is in mourning at the loss of another one of her Great American Hero's, Sgt Kevin B. Balduf, 27, of Nashville, TN, who died May 12 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. Sgt. Balduf was assigned to 8th Communications Battalion, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C. He was a 2002 graduate from David Lipscomb High School where he participated on the football team as a guard and linebacker. Anyone who knew Kevin knew he was destined to serve in the military. The idea formed when he was still in elementry school. During his formative years, he and his twin brother, watched military movies and Kevin would wear camo clothing already showing his devotion. After serving an enlistment peroid, he took a two year hiatus, but returned in 2008 to a job he loved. He was currently serving his second tour to Afghanistan, and had already served a deployment to Iraq. Among his awards are, the Bronze Star, awarded for Bravery during his first tour to Afghanistan. Sgt. Balduf is survived by his wife, Amy and two young daughters, his twin brother, Kyle, his mother Jenny Newsom, his uncle, Howard Newsom and his father, Chip Balduf. All contacts have been made, our Hero's family has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to escort and stand in Honor of this Fallen Hero, their Hero and ours....
