    This Mission has been completed. I want to thank those who managed to be there for Sergeant Jerry Wayne Brooks and his Family on short notice. Jerry's wife came and spoke with us before the service began and told us how much it meant to her that we were there for Jerry. Several other family members and friends of Jerry did the same through out the Mission.

    Counting "Yours Truly" there were 9 Patriot Guard Members present, one of which was a "First Time" rider. Glad to have you join us Ernie. We had 6 Bikes, 1 Trike and 2 Cages.

    And once again I want to thank Bob Binkley for "Wrangling" the Flags today.

    I hope all made it home safe and sound.
