Apparently one local resident was inconvenienced by the funeral procession and decided to complain to the Sheriff's office. The Sheriff responded.

for those who didnt know Brian. This guy was full of knowledge. Funny thing he joined the service as a food specialist..lol , But the warrior in him told him to go SF. I remember talking with him in our layover b4 arriving to A-stan. He was telling me how he got rated as a female on his NCOER in his prior mos. We were just sitting there laughing, what a fun loving guy, he will be missed. He was also a walking book of knowledge on weapons even though he was a medic. Miss ya buddy
