    Today we paid honor to Javier Gonzalez. Was a pretty nice day after the rain, temperature around 80. We had 5 PGR riders and several American Legion riders that joined us for a total of 13 flags in the flag line. Several friends and family members thanked us for paying honors for Mr Gonzalez. Thanks to Max for bringing out the flags and water. And a thanks to all who attended. RIP, Javier Gonzalez.
