Thanks to those who attended the service this morning for Bill Stiles. We had 4 motorcycles and 2 cages.
One of the family members attended the briefing and gave us some insight on what Bill's duties were while being deployed. They were very appreciative of our attendance and said that he would be honored that we were there.
Thanks for all you do to help these families.
