1st Sgt. Tobias C. Meister

From Patriot Guard Riders:
1st Sgt. Tobias C. Meister, 30, of Jenks, Okla., died south of Asadabad, Afghanistan on Dec. 28, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his HMMWV during combat patrol operations. Meister was assigned to the Army Reserve's 321st Civil Affairs Brigade, San Antonio, Texas.

This is the final Itinerary for the Patriot Guard Mission to honor Sgt. Tobias C. Meister. This mission is a go; all contacts have been made.

Services are Friday, January 6th, 2006 at 10:00 at the First Baptist Church in Jenks, OK (outside of Tulsa). ...
In attendance near the funeral today will be that asshat Fred Phelps.

I'm sorry for posting this so late, but if anyone is near enough to join the PGR and support Sgt. Meister's family, please do!

(Thanks Agnieszka)

Update (1/7 1:50am): Phelps and his hateful playmates showed up, but so did nearly 100 bikers and supporters to drown out any unwelcome noises. Click the link above for PGR and check the last page of posts for the After Action Reports. There are some pics from the PGR perspective here.
