    We had seven riders today to honor the service of LCpl King. Family friend and PGR rider Pat from Iowa was down for the weekend and stood the line with us.

    Keith Longacre & Matt Kappel folded and presented the flag to LCpl King’s mother. Live taps was provided by a bugler from Bugles Across America. There was a large turnout of friends and family.

    Thank you Don for posting the flags in advance, they worked out great.

    RIP, Mr. Hershel Heath King. Thank you for your service.
