Eight patriot Guard Riders were in attendance to honor MSGT Roth. Was surprised that only 3 LEO's showed up as MSGT was a retiree of APD. Thanks to all for showing up and honoring Mr. Roth and an especial thanks to Dick for flag wrangling and warning me that I 35 was a parking lot and to find another route to the church.
