    The Ghost

    The first part of the mission for A1C Collins consisted of 5 Patriots who stood in a flag line prior to the church service. Mrs. Collins, A1C Collin's widow came over to the staging area to thank the PGR for being there. The second half of the mission consisted of 8 PGR members in a flag line at the cemetery. Thanks to those that stood their second mission of the day.
    Thanks to all who attended.
