VICTORIA – On Friday, the community is invited out to honor local fallen soldier Kerry Danyluk, 27, of Cuero.
Danyluk died from combat wounds sustained in Afghanistan on April 15th.
The honor reception will begin at 11:30 a.m. Friday. The Patriot Guard Riders, along with Victoria Police, will escort Danyluk’s body to the funeral home.
The procession will take off at Grace Funeral Home off Houston Highway and end at his funeral at Faith Family Church.
If you’d like to join in the honor reception the route will go from Houston Highway north, then turn left on Ben Wilson, then turn left onto Sam Houston, turn right at Mockingbird and finally turn left into Faith Family Church.
Organizers are asking residents to be on the side of road with an American flag to show their appreciation for Danyluk's ultimate sacrifice.
They say it's proper to stand up and salute or hold your hand over your heart while Danyluk's procession is driving by.
