Patriot Guard to escort Baker to funeral home

The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by Amanda Baker's family to escort her body from the Dugan Kramer Funeral home in Scottsbluff to the Monument Bible Church on Avenue I for her funeral Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.

The escort is planned to start at 1:45 p.m. at the Dugan-Kramer Funeral Home and go directly north on Ave B. to 42nd street - north of the hospital then proceed directly west to Avenue I and the church. Patriot Guard Ride Captain Steve Thomlison of Scottsbluff says the purpose of the ride is to show honor and respect for the correction officer and her family.

Thomlison encourages the public to bring a little American flag and stand along 42nd Street around 1:45 while the Guard and the funeral procession goes by. You may also volunteer to stand in a Flag line at the church where they will have about 50 large flags available. The flag line will be from 1:45 to 3:00 and he encourages people to dress warmly.
