The Huron Township community came together today to honor a local hero.
Below is video and photos showing the family and friends escort to the memorial service of Master Sgt. Amanda West, a Huron Township resident who passed away March 17 after battling cancer and serving almost 20 years in the Army.
The escort route on Friday started at Michigan Memorial Park and winded along Huron River Drive past Huron High School and Renton Junior High.
Students from both schools stood along the route, some holding American flags, to honor the fallen Army sergeant.
The escort then passed by Brown Elementary, where school students stood outside to witness the procession.
The escort traveled through other Downriver communities before it ended at a memorial service in Riverview.
