FT. GAINES, GA (WALB) - A number of South Georgians came to the procession to honor Weston Lee.
Lt. Lee's body was brought from Ft. Benning to Ft. Gaines Friday, and much of the route was lined with people and flags.
One of the groups working along the procession route was the American Legion Riders. They planted dozens of flags along the procession route to show their appreciation for Lt. Lee, who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation and our freedom.
Paul Murray said for many of the American Legion Riders, this is a very emotional day.
