I saw a young woman attempting to take a picture of the events and I overhead a man telling her that no photos were to be taken and when she protested they were for a friend it didn't make any difference.If The Marietta Times was told not to that's between the person and them.

It seems like no matter what is wrote or how nice it is put someone has something to complain about. Just honor this family and friends that lost this wonderful man. God bless the family and I hope they can find healing and peace.

Explain -- What's wrong with a picture of the service? Why would the Times be requested not to publish a picture of a large funeral gathering?

what is sad it that the Marietta Times would publish pictures of the casket and service members when they were asked not to do that. It is one of the most disrespectful things the Times or Parkersburg papers has done in a long time. I will be cancelling my subscription to the Times tomorrow morning

Folks, this is about the Marine! Not those wanting hidden fame, recognition, & publicity. With that said, here is a job well done to EVERYONE. EVERYONE from the Marines, the families, police, sheriff, Patriot Guard, restaurants, VFW/AmLeg, high school, the oil & gas guys that gave up their rooms, and lastly everyone not listed.

Now let us return to paying respect to Marine LCpl Joshua Taylor or Alpha Co, 1/9.

The family lost a loved one. The community lost a friend. The Corps lost a warrior. And in this tragedy, the Lord gained a great Angel!

I was glad to be a part of this and to see the community be recognized for supporting and respecting this wonderful fallen marine. Prayers go out to the families in this difficult time.

Michelle71004 this is copied and pasted from the article;

"Kevin Geisel, a Patriot Guard Ride Captain, said the riders were invited by Taylor's family.

"We have about 100 riders," he said. "I brought 50 flags of my own and I handed every one of them out. ""

He said "OF MY OWN" not on loan.
