    The Ghost

    13 patriot Guard Members stood in honor of Marine Gwatney and most stayed for the Memorial service. Thanks to Keith for the flags. It was great to see Cigar King again. The chapel was full with people from all services, government, police, constables and hospital staff. Marine Gwaltney was well represented.
