Friday 6/26: Funeral services will be held at Shepherd's Funeral Home in the morining at 10:30 with internment at 1:30 PM on at the Bourne National Cemetery.
In accordance with Louise Janhola's wishes, the 22nd will post uniformed guards at the entrance to the funeral home on either side of the entrance door and we will rotate them frequently. Uniformed reenactors are welcome and will be set-up on the side of the room. At the end of the night and after the family has paid their respects, the 22nd and any other reenactors in attendance will form up for a walk through and final salute. The uniform will be forage caps, sack coat, infantry trousers, waist belt only. No muskets, haversacks, canteens, cap pouches, cartridge boxes or bayonets
We will be dedicating the July 4 ceremony in Braintree to honor Rick. This was an event that he held dear to his heart and we feel it would be fitting and proper to celebrate his life in this fashion. Following the ceremony, we will find a spot to gather and share our thoughts and memories of Rick. I would ask that everyone (this is open to all,not just members of the 22nd) who want to attend this event to please join us.
