    6 PGR braved the heat to attend the service of SSGT Tucker on Friday. Thanks to those who were able to make it, we made a positive impact on the family and friends who passed through the flag line.

    Also, thank you Frank for wrangling the flags. Great seeing you again, my friend!


    I want to thank all that showed up for my Father-in-laws service. It was a small gathering, so the 6 that braved the heat of the hottest day of the year so far was the perfect number!

    He was watching from above and loved to see the flags being treated with such respect.

    Thank you all!
