Fred Phelps is the late leader of Westboro Baptist Church who has been a vocal critic of the military and the USA. He was infamous for picketing at the funerals of service men and women. Please search your records in light of this. It seems reasonable to expect records to exist discussing Fred Phelps in particular on how to handle his picketing of military funerals.
