More Details:
Sgt. Ryan P. Baumann, 24, of Great Mills, MD, died Aug. 1 from injuries sustained when his vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. Sgt Bauman was assigned to the 101st Airborne in Ft Campbell, KY. Sgt Baumann's fiancée lives just south of St Mary's City and Sgt Baumann's mother and step father live in Great Mills, MD. His funeral will be held at Brinsfield Funeral home in Leonardtown (across from College of Southern MD) at 10:00 am Monday August 11, 2008. He will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. We are trying to get people and flags to line the funeral's procession route starting in Leonardtown to show our respect and appreciation for this brave young man that made the ultimate sacrifice. The procession will depart Brinsfield Funeral Home between 10:45-11:00 and proceed from Hollywood Rd turning right onto Rte 5 north. If you or anyone you know can help support this effort it would be appreciated. We would like to show Sgt Baumann's family that St Mary's County and Southern MD support our military and are thankful for the freedom we enjoy because of their sacrifices.
