Beeler was the fourth member of Lansing's Charlie Company to be killed while serving overseas. They've only been gone since October. Beeler was killed on December 7 during combat operations in Iraq.
His funeral procession was led by close to 100 members of the Michigan Patriot Guard... which may have been why there was no sight of the Kansas based church group which has made practice of protesting soldier's funerals across the country.
Beeler was 22. A graduate of Napoleon High School.
