It was a nice turnout of 15 patriots to stand in honor of Mr. Edwards, father of one of our own riders, Toby. And we had three first time riders, which was wonderful!
The flag line was in the sun, but a decent breeze made it OK. The family and friends came out of the building to see and photograph the flag line. Toby approached the flag line and shook everyone’s hand and thanked us for honoring his father.
Two of our riders folded and presented the flag to Mrs. Edwards inside the hall.
Thank you again, Max, for bringing the flags and water. And thanks to all who attended. You made a difference today.
RIP, SGT Edwards.
