Letter to the Editor:

A genuine sense of patriotism and community filled the air in Oxford, Pa., this past weekend to properly and memorably welcome home a fallen hero. Thank you Chester County for participating in the celebration of the life of Major Louis Fulda Guillermin.

Thank you to all our brave men and women of the United States Air Force who after 45 years never forgot the sacrifice Major Louis Fulda Guillermin gave in service to our country. Their integrity and professionalism was demonstrated by their steadfast resolve in bringing a fallen soldier back to his family, friends and community; revealing that those who are MIA remain forever in the heart of our nation.

Thank you to the Warriors Watch Riders (WWR) for leading the precession, the Chester County Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America, The Pennsylvania State Police (Avondale Barracks), The Philadelphia Police, the Chester County Sheriff's Department, and the Oxford Police Department for safely escorting the procession to Oxford. 

A special acknowledgement to the Union Fire Company No. 1 Oxford, West Grove Fire Department, and the Broomall Fire Company who proudly provided a ladder arch displaying a large American Flag in honor of Major Guillermin. To the Kennett Fire Company No. 1, Longwood Fire Company and the Avondale Fire Company who respectfully aligned their fire apparatus as the procession went through their towns.

Thank you for the patriotism of the children, staff and teachers of the Sacred Heart School in Oxford,  the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of the Chester County Council and the Cradle of Liberty Council,  and all the patriots who showed their appreciation in honoring our soldier's homecoming.

I would finally like to thank the family of Major Louis Fulda Guillermin for the privilege and honor of allowing us to serve their family. And thank you Major Louis Fulda Guillermin for your ultimate sacrifice, you are our Chester County Hero - our American Hero and you will never be forgotten.   God Bless America.

 

Respectfully,

The Family and Staff of the Edward L. Collins, Jr. Funeral Home, Inc.
