Funeral plans for Seth "XJFire" Stanton

Frank Z was awesome for getting this coordinated and sending me this information:

As you all know, PFC Seth Stanton died as a result of the injuries he received from an IED in Iraq. Services for Seth Stanton will be held on Dec.27, 2006 at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs.

Susan Stanton, Seth’s Aunt relayed the following message:


Quote:
I know that Seth would love to have his friends in the four wheeling community attend his service. It is at 1 pm on the 27th at the NewLifeChurch in the Springs.
I hope that you can help get the word out about our efforts with the coalition (see my earlier posting), hopefully we will find a trail improvement project day this Summer and all come together to keep his passion for four wheeling alive and growing for generations to come.

It means a lot to us to know that he touched so many lives both directly and indirectly.

Susan

We have decided that since Seth was a fellow off-road enthusiast, a caravan of off-road vehicles to the services would be a fitting tribute to this soldier and a show of support for his family.

We will meet at the Sky Sox Stadium Parking as follows;

Meet at the Sky Sox Stadium Parking lot between 9:30 -10:00. Leave promptly at 10:15 AM

Arrive at New Life between 10:45-11:00 AM

The service starts at 1 pm

He gave us so much…. I hope that all of you can spare 1 day out of your busy schedule for this fallen American Soldier.

If possible, please display an American Flag on your rig and a mourning band as well.

Re: Funeral plans for Seth

I have a mourning band for an ID badge, what is a mourning band for a vehicle?

Isn't anyone coming from the west side of the Springs? I'll be at work, and sky sox stadium is a good 45 minutes extra travel time for me.

It can be as simple as a black ribbon on the antenna, or a black ribbin above the flag if you choose to fly a flag on your rig. Here's a reference for you...

Re: Funeral plans for Seth

I really wish I could be there. A few hours notice is simply not enough for me, but these are never convienient.

Thanks guys.
