    Please make plans for attending to honor this WWII veteran for his service and sacrifice to our country.


    An excellent turnout of 14 riders, including several that made it in right under the wire from the earlier mission in Elgin. One two-up bike and one cage flying the PGR flag and Old Glory. One first time rider who is also currently serving in the Air Force Reserve. We were especially moved by the overwhelming amount of appreciation shown to each of us by so many of Mr. Fuccello's family members and friends. Thanks also to Flag Wrangler Howard Herring for making a "water run" prior to the flag line. Good Mission!! Thanks!!!
