...On Sunday, 13 March 2010, COL Francis Max McCullar left us. He moved from Enterprise to a retirement home in Marrietta, Georgia.
We joined together as a community and show Max how much his friendship has meant to us all and how much we appreciate his military service. He is a true friend and a true American Hero!
The Parade Route was as Follows: At 2:00, Max's daughter will leave his residence, with Max in the car.
He was first met, at his house, by members of the 15th Alabama and the 31st Alabama Civil War reenacters coordinated by Cpl. Wayne Brunson.
Max then traveled to Food World where the Patriot Guard Riders, lead by Tom Ellis and the Military Vehicle Restoration Club, lead by Lamar Rowland, escorted him onto the circle and turn left to head towards Rucker Blvd. Before leaving the staging area, Entreprise city officials officially proclaimed the day as Mr. Max's day.
The parade, lead by Enterprise Police Chief Jones, proceeded past Wal-Mart, across HWY 84, past the Elementary School where Max has been a dedicated volunteer.
At HWY 27, the parade turned North and continued through town, under the train trestle and down Main Street. Once past the Boll Weevil Monument, the parade went straight to the circle and turned right. The last turn was North onto HWY 167.
When we participate in a funeral procession for a vet, we show the family members how much we cared for their Loved one. Max is still very much alive and it was our duty as his friends and as Americans to stand somewhere along the route and show our support. He is truly an amazing person and we were all lucky to have had him in our community.
