Article Photos: Oklahoma soldier's body returns to Lawton 5/5

An active duty soldier walks up to  Patriot Guard Riders and shakes each person's hand before the plane carrying the remains of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Travis Tompkins. His remains arrived in a flag-draped casket on a small jet at Henry Post Army Airfield on Ft. Sill Wednesday afternoon.  Tompkins died March 16 of wounds suffered in an attack the previous day when enemy forces attacked his unit in Afghanistan with a rocket-propelled grenade.  His funeral is Friday. <strong>JIM BECKEL - THE OKLAHOMAN</strong>
