The George H.W. Bush funeral ceremonies on Wednesday have a special tie for one Rantoul family.

Their son was one of the honor guards chosen to protect the casket.

24-year-old Chris Deaville is part of the United States Coast Guard.

He stood watch all night at the Capitol Rotunda from Monday to Tuesday.

Both of his parents said they are extremely proud of him.
