Please attend to show honor and gratitude for this veteran's long, dedicated service to our nation.
Thank you to all who came out on this short notice mission to honor MSgt Hill. We had eight in the flag line in front of the funeral home. Don and Keith L. staked some flags, and we stood under the overhang along the front porch until a few minutes after 11 am. Thank you again, Don, for bringing flags and water.
The USAF honor guard performed a three volley rifle salute in the parking lot just before the start of the service. We saw but did not hear the bugler. I guess she played inside the building.
RIP CD Hill. Thank you for your life of service to our nation and community.
