The escort for SFC Sawyer last Saturday was my second PGR mission. It was a moving experience for me, and later on I heard some long-time riders say it was for them too. Good to know it wasn't just me.
I was almost Tail End Charlie on this mission, driving my cage near the end of the column. I had my camera along, and with my left hand on the wheel, with my right hand did spray-and-pray exposures (just snap 'em off and see what you get). Out of 28 shots I got 11 usable ones, and even then some are pretty crude as far as good picture standards go, but still they capture an unforgettable journey for me. I posted them here.
Very glad to be a part of this group and to be of service to our fallen heroes and their families.
