1st Lieutenant Jeffery Douglas Cooper, a SAR compatriot, was killed in an accident while deployed to Kuwait. His father, also an SAR compatriot, from Washington State, requested that the Virginia Society provide the SAR Funeral Ritual at the graveside service today. Virginia SAR 1st Vice President Mike Elston organized the Virginia Society participation and eleven members of seven chapters, from as far as Norfolk, answered the call to honor Lt Cooper. The CMM were represented by President Bill Schwetke, who participated in the Color Guard.
