Very sad time for our close knit community. There will be a Candlelight Prayer Vigil this Tuesday evening at Oak Hill Park by the Veteran's Memorial in Danville (next to Monte Vista) at 6:00 PM ...
Please join us in putting our arms around Josh' family and honoring our fallen hero.

My Marine Corps flag and my US Flag (that flew over us US 7th Fleet) is out in Honor of my fellow Marine, Lcpl Corral, USMC.
Please attend the vigil and bring your school age children. All must understand what war is all about, and what the ultimate sacrifice really means, and its toll.

I am a SRVHS graduate from class of 02 and an Army Veteran. I want to go to the vigil on Tuesday night but I have never been to one. Do you bring your own candle? What do you wear?

500 candles have been purchased, you can bring your own if you wish ... and you can wear anything you wish to.
