Soldier’s Memorial Draws Hundreds

Friends, family, and complete strangers turned out in Forest Grove last night to pay their respects to a fallen soldier. Ryley Gallinger-Long, 19, was shot to death as he was helping an injured Marine in Afghanistan. Many people came out to say goodbye as his casket made its way from the airport to a funeral home. Ryley's brother, Zach, was touched by all of the community support: "As my mom was saying as he went by, it just takes your breath away with every single person. It’s amazing,  it’s so nice to see how much everybody cares; he not just another number."  Governor Kitzhaber has ordered all flags at public institutions to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sundown on Saturday to honor Ryley Gallinger- Long.
