    With the parking lot nearly full, 12 PGR stood the flag line, with one at the drive entrance. With great emotion & tears, Mr Cook’s wife & children took the time to walk the flag line to thank each of us & tell us how much it meant that we were doing what we were doing. Don staged flags so that it gave a much bigger flag line appearance.
    Thank U all for the giving of your time & service. It truly does make a difference.
    Semper Fi Marine, Guard the gates well.
