Friends and colleagues of Marine Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. have planned a memorial service for their fallen comrade on February 24th, according to a Facebook page set up in Loggins' memory. Aaron Banks, who administers the "We Miss You Sgt. Manny Loggins" page, writes that civilians will not be let on base for the service being held at the Marine Memorial Chapel on Camp Pendleton.
Banks is a former Marine who served with Loggins in Hawaii.
Loggins' shooting death by an Orange County Sheriff's deputy February 7th still mystifies and outrages those who knew the Sergeant - who describe him as a calm, gentle, deeply religious family man. And even those who didn't know Loggins are full of questions about the shooting of the unarmed Marine in front of his two young daughters.
