LCpl Rodgers was laid to rest on Saturday, September 11, 2010; a date chosen to commemorate that seminal moment in history wherein the course of our Nation was forever changed in the blink of an eye ...... a date that so affected an eleven year old boy from Griffin, GA that he dedicated his young life to serving and righting that horrific wrong; a date that irrevocably altered his life, our lives and through his sacrifice, the lives of people he never knew.

Funeral services were held Saturday, September 11, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. at the Oak Hill Baptist Church. Interment followed in Westwood Gardens.
