The afternoon was bittersweet as many stood watching as PO3 Clayton R. Beauchamp’s funeral procession passed by near Greenwood Cutoff Road. A sad day was filled with pride at seeing the enormous degree of respect and dignity that was so generously displayed by what seemed to be thousands of vehicles led by an entourage of emergency vehicles and Patriot Guard motorcycles as they passed by en route to the cemetery.
PO3 Beauchamp, you did your duty and you paid the ultimate price. May we all live a life that is deserving of the freedom you paid for with your life – May you rest in peace.
