This is only the TV story, which is all I was able to get. Sorry for the lack of true detail, but these bastards are every bit as evil as Cindy Sheehan....
Oops! Sorry, forgot the link: http://wlns.com/Global/story.asp?S=4231583
Just Fred Phelps and his gang of hate-drunk loonies again...
Isn't there a group of vet bikers following this kook? Forming a perimeter to block the view for the funeral attendees?
I thought I read that somewhere.
Put in a call to the local VFW, and the Harley dealership. They'll drown them out.
As for Fred Phelps and the Westboro "Baptist Church", I'm certain God is reserving a special place for them.
Man that just busts my chops. Marine Lance Corporal David Huhn, and family, and friends, will all be in our thoughts tomorrow.
My brain is locking up, but hit the FReeper list. We need to hit these arseholes hard.
I concur with the VFW and the Harley dealers being the best venue to get the word out. We aren't too shabby on here, either, though :)
I'm sorry, I'm falling asleep, but if anyone in the area is available to counter those idiots, it would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks for the ping!
Holy smoke, I sure wish I could think of who to ping in time to notify some folks, but I think and pray Michigan won't let this family down.
This 'kid's' dad was a 'Nam vet who died earlier this year as he was leaving for deployment. A sister died at 13, I think it said. His uncle is a retired Marine.
Mayor James Barnes said the town was prepared to rally around the family and their fallen hero, a 2000 graduate of Portland High School. Huhn's father, Larry, died earlier this year at age 54. A sister, Jaime, died in a farming accident in 1990.
David A. Huhn
David A. Huhn, age 24, of Portland, MI passed away on December 1, 2005 near Fallujah, Iraq while on night patrol. David was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. He was an avid Nascar fan, especially Tony Stewart, as well as a W.W.F. fan. He also enjoyed sports, fishing, playing cards and watching movies. He was preceded in death by his father, Larry Huhn; sister, Jaime Huhn; grandparents, Ronald Lenneman and Harold and Irene Huhn. Surviving are his mother, Diane Huhn; sister, Christina (Craig) Forist; brother, Kevin Huhn; niece, Jamelyn Forist; grandmother, Dorothy Lenneman, all of Portland; numerous aunts and uncles. The Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 13, 2005 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Portland, with the Rev. Larry King, Pastor presiding. Rite of Committal will follow at Portland Cemetery. Full Military Honors will be provided by Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division.

Condolences can be made:
I emailed American Legion Riders in Michigan.
Thanks for the ping Freema.
Tonk, I know it's late, but could you ping your list. The funeral is at 11:00 this morning.
No, thank you.
Shoot, I forgot to mention his brother was a Marine, too.
was/is/and ever shall be : )
Since they are so heavy in the military, I'm guessing the VFW will be there. Do you know?
No, I don't. I assume they would, especially with the stories I found.
Guess what. My brother-in-law just bought another Harley, after having his last one stolen yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaars ago. He's joined a new chapter of ALR. He helped me get the word about on those other two funeral protests. I haven't heard any reports about how one of them, but the other...I understand Phelps decided not to attend.
My nephew, his only child, is due home from Iraq shortly, and safely, God willing. I'm on pins and needles.
