What a good feeling it is on an extremely short notice mission to arrive and see fellow Patriot Guard Riders come out in numbers to honor a WW II Veteran. I believe we ended up with 13 bikes and Sam wrangling. There were several that were doing double duty at an earlier PGR mission and the morning Honor Flight at ABIA to D.C. Mr. Roggenkamp's family was very gracious and most appreciative. His Son and daughter-in-law invited us to join the nearby gathering of family and friends after the burial. Thanks to all!! God Bless
