The procession travels from Tulsa International Airport to Claremore, Townsend’s home town, and where his funeral will be held. Lining the route are people waving flags…one of them is Sgt. 1<sup>st</sup> Class Chad <u>Broughton </u>with the Oklahoma National Guard. He says he’s been deployed overseas three times, and it’s always tough to see a young soldier like Townsend die in the war.
