Dakota Huse came home today

Dakota Huse came home today.
On the day that the Marine Corps celebrated its 235th birthday the Pentagon announced the death of the 19 year old Marine while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.
This afternoon Patriot Guard Riders and members of local law enforcement agencies escorted his remains from Shreveport Regional Airport to Centuries Memorial on Mansfield Road.
Visitation is scheduled from 5 – 9 on Friday.
Funeral Services will be held at 10AM Saturday at Summer Grove Baptist Church.
May God bless and comfort the family of this brave young Marine.


  1. Having never served in the military, I don't know if it's proper to offer a "salute."

    I'll just say "Thank you, Dakota, for your love of, and service to our nation.

    And, offer prayers and condolences to your family, and friends. May God comfort you all at this time. I know that you will miss him something awful.

  2. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this young hero. And I too salute this young marine for his service, honor, and sacrifice. God Bless you Lance Corporal Huse.
