My Nephew served with this young man and this is just about as disrespectful as anything I can imagine.

Fallen warrior’s funeral procession denied free access on toll roads in Oklahoma (http://www.usfallen.org/2010/10/14/fallen-warrior%e2%80%99s-funeral-procession-denied-free-access-on-toll-roads-in-oklahoma/)

In preparation for Pfc. Cody Board (http://www.usfallen.org/2010/10/07/pfc-cody-board-19-kia-returning-to-n-texas/) (KIA) mission, we have learned the family has chosen to welcome America’s son back to McKinney, TX for his funeral services. Additionally, they have chosen to return him back to Oklahoma, where he was born, at Ft. Sills National Cemetery for his interment services. The route includes a short toll road from the TX border to just outside of Lawton, OK.
Considering this young warrior has paid the ultimate price you would think his funeral procession would be allowed access free of charge. To our shock and horror, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, after repeated requests for an exception, has informed the family they must pay the toll fees.
Help us remind the state of OK; not only is America’s history paved with the blood of her patriots, but so are the highways.
Please join us in a phone campaign to the governor of the great state of OK and the appointed bureaucrat of the OK Turnpike Authority to demand they do the right thing and allow all families of fallen warriors a free pass on their turnpikes.

I'm guessing it's the usual smart ( NOT ) people we have in office and government jobs in OK. I just don't understand some things that some of them do.

Yea... Make that soldier and his family pay. They haven't paid enough yet :mad:. But let some ahole preacher and his band of merry misfits protest at a fallen soldiers funeral service. That's a real tuff freedom of speech issue to figure out :rolleyes:. No doubt that case will make it to the USSC if it's not there already. What the hell country am I living in. You read this stuff and it's like some one kicked you in the stones.
