(PIKESVILLE, MD) – Maryland State Police are issuing a traffic advisory for early tomorrow as they work with State Highway Administration personnel and allied law enforcement officers to accommodate the funeral procession of a Maryland military officer who gave his life in service to our country.

He was assigned to the 29th Infantry Division Security Partnering Team of the Maryland Army National Guard.

-The Virginia State Police will assume control of the procession after crossing the American Legion Memorial Bridge in Virginia.
