Ceremony for Chad Coming this weekend

This Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2:00 PM there will be a special ceremony for Chad at the Veteran's Home in Fayetteville, AR.  The sweetest lady, Inaline Skelton, has arranged this.  She does ceremonies like this for every AR fallen soldier to honor them and make sure we never forget.  If you happen to be in town Saturday and would like to attend you are more than welcome to do so. 
It will be about an hour or so long and 3 of Chad's marine buddies will be there along with nearly all the "NUTS" that went to school with Chad.
As hard as I know it will be, it will be an honor to see this tribute.  It's my hope that his friends will share things about Chad while we are there and just talk about what he means to them. 

Should you be able to attend you should arrive no later than 1:50 PM Saturday and here are the directions to get there:

If you are traveling South on college (71B) turn right on North St.  The immediate drive looks like it will take you to the underground parking, but rather than going to the covered parking take another immediate right and it will actually take you to the top parking deck.  You will see UAMS immediately in front of you and you look to the right you will see an addition (red brick) and on that building you will see “Veterans’ Home”.  Go through the double glass doors and there will be a guard there to direct you to the garden where the ceremony will be.  She suggested getting there no less than 10 minutes prior to the ceremony starting, which is at 2:00 pm.
