On a warm and somewhat chilly Fall day, 2 PGR arrived to Escort, show Tribute, Respect and Honor for our fallen Veteran Larry Crawford and his family.
I would like to thank the following:

US Navy Veteran Larry Crawford, his family and friends
Upon graduation from High School Larry enlisted in the Navy. After training he was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station. In 1969 Larry left the Navy and took a job as a bus driver for Shasta Lake Elementary schools. Two years later he took a job for Caltrans. He started work in Doyle, California. When the Caltrans yard closed in Doyle, he moved to Portola, California and eventually was transferred to Susanville, California. He went to work at Sierra Army Depot as a warehouseman and then as a truck driver. Larry retired from Sierra Army Depot in 2002 and moved with the family to Soledad, California.
Rest in Peace.. Your Mission here is complete..
