Residents and Murrieta Valley High School students gather Friday along Washington Avenue to salute a procession carrying the remains of U.S. Army Sgt. Clinton Ruiz, a 2008 MVHS graduate.
The motorcade was led by the Patriot Guard Riders from Camp Pendleton to Murrieta, with the assistance of California Highway Patrol.
Ruiz, a husband and father, was killed Oct. 25 in Afghanistan.
