Community groups are organizing a salute Friday to Spc. Luther “Will” Rabon Jr., a member of the S.C. Army National Guard who died Oct. 1 during combat in Afghanistan.
It will occur during a nine-mile procession from a private funeral at Red Bank Baptist Church to Southland Gardens Memorial Cemetery.
Those taking part are asked ro gather holding an American flag by 3 p.m. at one of two intersections — South Lake Drive (S.C. 6) near Platt Springs Road or Platt Springs and Emanuel Church roads. The procession is expected to reach the cemetery by 4 p.m.
Businesses and homes along the route are encouraged to display flags, yellow ribbons and messages of tribute.
