Final Honors Help Needed, Arkadelphia, Arkansas

This has been going around today on Facebook, and I've just talked with the funeral home.  There is a WWII veteran, Lee Roy Cochran, who has reported to the Green and has services tomorrow.  At 93, most of his friends and family have gone before him.  His granddaughter would like for any and all fellow veterans (and troop supporters) who can attend to do so.  A bit about him provided by the family:

Lee Roy Cochran was drafted into the infantry and was assigned to a glider unit, set to jump into Europe. Their entire platoon got shot down. Survivors were re-deployed to the Philippines, where he was awarded a Bronze Star.

The funeral is tomorrow at 1530 hours (3:30 pm) at South Fork Cemetery, Gurdon, Clark County, Arkansas.  Ruggles-Wilcox Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, and will be glad to provide directions for those needing them.  You can contact them via the link at need. 

Anyone who can attend, I hope you will do so.
