    Thanks to the members who braved the 38 deg temp and light rain to stand tall for this veteran and his family. We found out that he served in Vietnam and Korea, and spent 20 yrs in the military.
    Several individuals expressed their thanks and intention to begin attending other missions with the PGR.
    We had 1 bike and 5 cages.
