A 54-year-old Texan who served in the U.S. Air Force during "Operation Desert Storm" was waiting for the train to pass through Pinehurst so he could pay his respects to his former commander-in-chief.

Kevin Gulley, who lives in nearby Cypress, wore a blue jacket with "U.S. Air Force" embroidered in gold lettering on the back and had a button reading "Looking Great for '88" on his lapel.

"He was a part of my life when I was there, and I wanted to pay my respects as he's on his way to his final resting place," Gulley said.

Gulley stood waiting next to his son's former football coach, 56-year-old Bill Powers. The two ran into each other here waiting for the train.

Powers says, "It's what he wanted because he wanted everybody to be together."


Some people who lined up along the train route decided to make — or pick up — their own keepsakes to remember the day.

Some left coins on the tracks to be flattened as the train passed over and others picked up nearby rocks to take home.

"It's something we'll always keep," Allen said.
