    Please try to attend to honor Murdock for his dedicated service to our country.


    Thank you all who came to honor this Korean / Vietnam USAF veteran. The USAF honor guard did an excellent job. out of the 11 folks, 3 were first timers. The family was very gracious and were glad that we were there. the widow said " 'Doc' would be so proud."

    Special appreciation to Lyn for wrangling the flags. Hope you get to feeling better Dick.


    Received this in a nice card from the family, for the PGR members:

    You were present at my fathers memorial service, Murdock Briery, this past Saturday. The sight of you all lining the building immediately set the tone for a service that truly honored a man who served this great country with love and dedication.
    Thank you!

    Jon Briery
