Although David Weeks isn’t a member of the service, the Patriot Guard member visited the crash site of the KC-130, where 16 Marines lost their lives. David stopped on Highway 82 not to tell the fallen goodbye but “to let these American heroes know their service and sacrifices were appreciated…Playing taps was my way of saying, ‘thank you.'” While the Patriot Guard Riders usually attend the funerals of the fallen service members, David didn’t want to wait until they were laid to rest to show his appreciation.
