The body of 19-year-old Marine, Jordan Smith, will be escorted from Rockwall, Texas, to his hometown, Broken Bow, Oklahoma, today.

Smith reportedly died as the result of an accident at his military base last week and is being transported to Broken Bow for his funeral which will take place at Broken Bow High School Wednesday.  The escort will take place along I-30 in Hunt County through to Hopkins County and into Franklin County sometime between 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. Monday.

The motorcade will exit Franklin County at State Highway 37 and proceed to Broken Bow, Oklahoma, through Red River County.

The public is invited to show their support and can expect to see the placing of a U.S. Flag on the Highway 69 overpass.
