    Please plan to honor another one of our heros from the Viet Nam war


    It was well past sunset when the heavily attended service for Alfredo Lara was concluded. Mr. Lara's wife, Sue Ann Lara asked me to convey her appreciation to the nine Patriot Guard Riders that rode and stood in honor of her husband Alfredo. Frank (Scooter Jr.) James Granddaughter Kendyl, who rode two up with her Grandfather was one of the nine. Thank you J.C. Clausen for wrangling the flags and staying late to ensure no rider was left behind in the dark.
