    A U.S. Marine ceremonial detail carries the remains of Marine PFC Richard Rivenburgh, who was killed at 21 years old in the 1975 rescue operation of the U.S. container ship Mayaguez when his helicopter was shot down off the coast of Cambodia. A contingent of Patriot Guard Riders lines the walkway for the funeral, which was held at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Monday, August 6, 2012, in San Diego, California
