Great turnout today for SFC Sawyer and his family. Hard to say exactly how many with the two flag lines and arrivals/departures, but Id say 60 grateful patriots is not too far off. Nice little rain shower during the break to rinse the drought dust off the scooters, too.
Thank you all for spending the better part of your Saturday to honor
SFC Sawyer's sacrifice and support his family and friends at this tragic time. A wonderful effort and execution by all involved, including the many folks who lined the route past Sun City and through Florence. That display must have brought some comfort to this grieving family, and blurred vision to our eyes.
May the Lord grant SFC Sawyer his well earned rest and bring peace and comfort to those he left behind.
