PGR Mission – Escort Sgt JP Huling – Departure for Arlington

You may recall that a couple of days ago the Patriot Guard escorted Sgt JP Huling for his memorial services.  Today, we escort him one last time as he departs for internment at Arlington National Cemetery.

Rest in Peace Sgt. Huling.  Your service is done and we thank you.

PGR Mission – Escort Sgt. JP Huling – Services

Today we have the honor of escorting Sgt. JP Huling to his memorial service.

J.P. Huling, of West Chester, was killed while on foot patrol in Anwar Province and was ambushed by what appeared to be an Afghan military policeman, according to his mother, Debbie Huling.

Huling’s death was originally reported by the International Security Assistance Force, which characterized it as the result of gunshot wounds inflicted by someone wearing an Afghan National Army uniform.

Huling suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was flown by a helicopter to a hospital, where he died of his injuries.
