ROUTE INFO (H/T to J. Bounds): Residents will line the streets with American Flags and posters to honor our fallen Hero, Sgt. Brandon Bury.  The route will be east bound down Kingwood Drive and turning left on Woodland Hills to St. Martha’s Catholic Church. 

The best place to stand would seem to be on Woodland Hills (in the median or on the Bear Branch side of Woodland Hills) as the cars progress northward from Kingwood Drive all the way north to St. Martha’s.  There are several schools and churches and businesses in the general area of intersection of Tree Lane and Woodland Hills where one could park the car and walk over.
