The family of Ms. Natasha Medlock, a US Army Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders at the graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one.

SGT. Natasha “Tasha” Christine Medlock was born on June 25, 1988 and passed away on July 19, 2019.

“I am still in disbelief over this tragedy and heartache. This beautiful woman is a daughter of one of my clients. She was helping her mom with the purchase of her home, and I spoke with her with instructions the day before she took her life. If you can find it in your heart to support her please do so. Please pray for our men and woman in uniform that have PTSD and are in that place where suicide is the only option. My heart hurts so much for this family, I just cannot imagine. We, at Aligned Mortgage, stand with the Medlock family. Her unit recently deployed and she only has a couple of family members to attend her funeral here. Can you make the time to attend or share to ask others to attend? No soldier should be buried alone.” Melody Niemietz
