    My name is Lou Freitas and I’m a Deputy State Captain for the South East Texas Patriot Guard Riders.

    I’m trying get information pertaining to the March 27, 2008 death of Spc. Joshua A. Molina of Houston Texas who was supporting the Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was assigned to the 1st Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, Vilseck, Germany.

    The information that will help us most is if a CAO has been assigned what is their contact information, possible dates of bringing him to the United States, plus any other information that would help.

    It will be an honor of the Patriot Guard Riders to Stand Tall and Silent for this Hero and his Family.

    Thanking you in advance for your help, and all of what you do.
    Sincerely,
    Lou
