Senator Bob Archuleta presented the U.S. flag that was flown over the State Capitol in Sacramento to the Barranco family, honoring Marine Cpl. Marco “Andy” Barranco, one of the servicemen who were killed in a training accident earlier this month. During the presentation of the flag, Sen. Archuleta explained the 13 folds of the U.S. flag ceremony, gave remarks honoring Marine Cpl. Marco Barranco and all who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our country, as well as all the current servicemen and women. The Barranco family shared their memories of their son, brother and friend during the private ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2020, outside of the family home in Montebello. They were joined by members of the Montebello Police Department, the U.S. Marine Corps, and immediate family.

“It was my honor to be invited by Cpl. Barranco’s family to be part of this private ceremony. They have shown such strength and grace during this most difficult time for their family. The U.S. Marine Corps family has supported them since this tragic accident took place last week, as have the city of Montebello, the Montebello Police Department, family, friends, and the entire Montebello community. God bless Marine Cpl. Marco Barranco, may he rest in peace,” Sen. Archuleta said.
