Flags are flying at half-mast in El Dorado and Shreveport for Major Wayne Culver. I think all of our readers know that Major Culver was killed in Iraq Monday.
Funeral services are still pending, but it is expected that the services will be in El Dorado followed by a procession to Shreveport for burial.
When we get more details, we will let you know.
According to The Times, squadron Chaplain James Collins said "The Army has the seven core values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage, to me, Wayne exemplified those Army values. We learn them and we are supposed to live them. Not everyone does...but he did. He was a friend to everyone, regardless of rank. It didn't matter if they were a cook or a general, he treated everyone the same. He was a good husband, a good father and a good Soldier, but most importantly, he was a good man."
There will be a ceremony in honor of Major Wayne Culver at 11 a.m. on Memorial Day outside the Union County Courthouse in El Dorado.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
