A breezy, pleasant spring day for the 13 riders who came out to honor the service of US Army and law enforcement veteran Roger Nitchman, Jr. We were happy to welcome a first time rider, Jeffrey Palermo.
We rode together from our staging location to a parking location secured for us with cones by the local American Legion members who were on hand to participate in the memorial service. We formed a flag line on each side of the Fallen Warriors memorial for the 55 minute event. A little longer than anticipated, but everyone held up fine.
A US Army honor guarded folded the flag and played taps toward the end of the event. The MC publicly thanked the PGR for attending, resulting in applause from the assembled crowd.
RIP SGT Roger H. Nitchman, Jr.
