From Gerry (tripod)…..Riders – Dion Mills, Bennie's son (retired USAF), sent this note thanking you for honoring Bennie at his final resting place in Lockhart Tx on 2 Sep 09. Bennie will indeed be missed by his many friends, comrades in arms, and family.
“One behalf of my family, please thank the members of the PGR who attended and served as the honor guard for my father’s graveside service. From the formation of flags to the presentation of the flag, the entire service was more than we ever could have expected. Being a former commander and having attended too many of these type of events, I can tell you the PGR brought a personal and professional touch to my father’s service that could not be duplicated anywhere, including Arlington. As we said goodbye to our father, my family and I felt surrounded by an extended family who understood and shared the meaning of honor, service, integrity and family. Once again, thank-you.
Dee Mills and family”
