Family, friends bid final farewell to fallen Marine

(KMOV) – Friends and family bid a final farewell to a fallen Marine on Saturday.

Staff Sergeant Jordan Emrick was laid to rest after he was killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Afghanistan after having served two tours in Iraq.

The 26-year-old was from Hoyleton, Illinois.

Members of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church threatened to protest his funeral. However, Patriot Guard Riders were on hand to drown out any noise from demonstrators.
