Durango prepares for military funeral for Capt. Jeff Kuss
Marines are expected to arrive for the occasion. While he didn’t know how many Marines will come to Durango for the service, Capt. Clay Groover of Beaufort Air Station in South Carolina, the home of the Marine Attack Squadron 312, Kuss’ former unit, said a significant number had asked for leave and were traveling on their own dime to come show respect.
“It is extremely rare to find a ceremony of this magnitude for any military personnel,” said George Usinowicz about what Durango can expect. He served in the Vietnam War, and his brother was a fighter pilot. “But this group is so elite and so tight-knit, Durango will see something unique.”
Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered flags lowered to half-staff on all public buildings in Colorado from sunrise to sunset Saturday in Kuss’ honor.
Because Durango has never had a military funeral at this level, here’s a summary of how it will work:
Kuss will be flown to Durango in the Blue Angels C-130 Hercules, dubbed No. 6, his flight designation, on Friday, along with his family. Both the family and the military have asked that the return be closed to the public.
Residents can show their support for the family and respect for Kuss’ service along the route of the motorcade.
Only friends and family invited to the service and military members will ride in the motorcade.
“If Durango friends or family happened to be left off or an error was made on the list,” Kuss’ mother, Janet Kuss, said, “please don’t take offense and know it’s tough to plan this.”
The hope is residents will line the entire route. Free U.S. flags that people can wave are still available at the Durango Chamber of Commerce, 111 S... (The Durango Herald)
