Patriotic area residents lined U.S. 63 in Houston on Friday as a hearse carrying the body of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Tyler Smith passed through the Texas County seat.
Traffic was halted in both directions as a large procession passed through.
The convoy started at the Vichy airport, traveling to Bradford Funeral Home in Summersville.
Numerous citizens and dignitaries lined the street to view the procession, many holding American flags of varying sizes. As the dozens of law enforcement vehicles, motorcycle-escort bikes and other vehicles carrying members of the Smith family and friends rolled slowly through town, they passed under a large American flag suspended from the extended ladder of the City of Houston Fire Departments ladder truck. It was parked near U.S 63 and West Highway 17.
