UKIAH, Calif. – The memorial service honoring fallen Navy SEAL Jesse D. Pittman is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah.

Pittman was one of 30 U.S. servicemen killed August 6, 2011 in Wardak Province, Afghanistan.

He was a 2002 Willits High School graduate joining the Navy in March 2005 and becoming a Navy SEAL in April 2007.

Pittman's extended family and friends ask the community Mendocino County and beyond to come out and show their support for the sacrifice made by Pittman and his family by lining the streets of Ukiah as the family is escorted to the fairgrounds for the service.

The procession is scheduled to travel from U.S. Highway 101 to the Perkins Street exit; head west to State Street turn north and travel to the fairgrounds.

The approximate time the procession should exit the freeway will be between 10 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. on Sept. 24.

Please bring a small American Flag if possible and pick a location on the designated route to help do your small part to let Pittman's family know that we all care and send deepest condolences their way at this time of tremendous loss.

For those who would like to make a donation to help with this memorial honoring Pittman, please send your donation to Agape Bible Church, C/O Jesse Pittman Fund, 290 S. Lenore, Willits, CA 95490.
