Sad but cool...

Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers came home Thursday, April 14 2011, his body borne upon a sea of waving American flags and hands held tightly in salute for the Brandon, MS Marine killed in Afghanistan earlier this month.

The following video is MHP Trooper Elmo Townsend's view as his dash cam recorded the escort from Airport Road and along U.S. 80, as hundreds of onlookers gathered to pay their respects. 

NOTE: Trooper Townsend is NOT driving fast! The video is sped up some to fit the length of the music - the original footage covers about 14 minutes - I thought it was more important to see all of the supporters rather than to see it in real time.

Song: Dress Blues by Jason Isbell

Rest in Peace, Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers.
