Sudbury Residents Want Entire Milley Motorcade Route Filled
Goal is to have every inch from Hanscomb to Duckett's Funeral Home lined with people.
UPDATED: 3:10 p.m.
Residents of Sudbury are reaching out to organize efforts to cover every inch between Hansomb Air Force Base and Duckett's Funeral Home in Sudbury for First Lt. Scott Milley's motorcade on Thursday.
Milley, a 10th Mountain Division Solider stationed at Fort Polk, La., was killed in Logar province, Afghanistan, last week from wounds sustained in a small arms weapons attack.
According to the Town of Sudbury's website, Milley's body will arrive at Hanscom Air Force Base at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Thursday and then leave Hanscom about 10 a.m., escorted by state and local police as they head to Sudbury.
The motorcade will travel along Bedford Road in Lincoln, turning first onto Route 117, and then onto Sudbury Road at Nine Acre Corner, passing the Nashawtuc Country Club where Sudbury Road in Concord becomes Concord Road in Sudbury. The procession will continue on Concord Road, passing Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, Sudbury Town Hall, and Goodnow Library along the way. At Route 20, the procession will turn right, eventually ending at Duckett's Funeral Home.
Residents gathered at Grange Hall on Wednesday to help make special red, white and blue pins for Thursday's motorcade, and the goal now is to line the route with as many people as possible.
To help with the efforts, citizens are asked to post comments on this article regarding where they plan to be. The goal is to have the entire route lined with people honoring Lt. Milley and his family.
