    Two Fallen Heroes will be given honor escorts this week in a show of respect

    MacDill Air Force Base at 11 a.m. His family and friends will be there for the
    dignified transfer. After a ceremony on the tarmac, the escort will depart

    Exit MacDill AFB Bayshore Gate, north on Bayshore Boulevard to east on Platt
    Street, to north on Florida Avenue to east on Jackson Street to north on
    Jefferson Street to the 1-275 connector. From there the escort will exit on
    Sligh Avenue to Manhattan Avenue (past Leto High School), to east on Broad
    Street to north on Dale Mabry Highway to Gonzalez Funeral Home, 7209 N. Dale
    Mabry.

    On WEDNESDAY, July 18, Fallen Hero Army SPC Clarence Williams III will arrive
    at MacDill AFB at 9 a.m. Following a ceremony, the escort (a contingent of
    personnel from HCSO, Florida Highway Patrol and the Hernando County Sheriff's
    Office) will depart MacDill through the Bayshore Blvd. gate around 9:30. The
    escort will go north on Bayshore Boulevard to east on Platt Street to north on
    Florida Avenue to east on Jackson Street to north on Jefferson Street to the
    I=275 connector and north. The escort will go through Hernando County and end
    at the Carnegie Funeral Home in Chiefland.

    We appreciate the media publicizing these escorts and the routes to allow the
    public the opportunity to show that Hillsborough County cares about our troops
    and the military families.
