Escort for Sgt. Sherman Set

Some 150 Patriot Guard Freedom Riders are expected at Midway Airport Friday afternoon to escort the body of U.S. Army Sgt. Jeremy Sherman home to Watseka. Sherman was killed in Egypt on November 12 th when mechanical problems brought down his helicopter while he was on a peacekeeping mission.  The procession is expected to leave the airport about 12:30 and arrive in Watseka around 2 pm.  Organizers are hoping for a showing a support by lining the streets of Watseka when they get into town. Please keep social distancing in mind if you plan to take part.
