Memorial service held for local marine KIA in Syria

     On August 12, 2017, the community of Buckhannon gathered with the family and friends of David Taylor, II, at Jawbone Park, for a memorial service to honor his heroic life. The young marine was just 25 years old and had already served four years in the US military, and he had joined the YPG, a Syrian-lead force in a fight against ISIS. David and three of his comrades were killed in a roadside attack on July 16, 2017.  The service lasted over three hours as several of David’s friends, fellow US Marines and fellow YPG members, stood to speak about the amazing life of David Taylor, II. He will be remembered for his bravery and his service to our great country.
