Mark Brittain and I along with his son will be there. Thanks to Mark for helping me get to these missions to Honor and show Respect to these hero's and to hopefully make it a little easier on their families and friends in their time of grief.January 17, 2011 at 8:27 pm #3024
We had 19 bikes and three cages this morning in honor of Mr. Berry's military service, including two first timers. Welcome Sarah and Butch.
The sun finally came out about 11 am and started knocking down the chill in the air. The funeral director told me that Mr. Berry, as a rider, was surely enjoying seeing us there. And of course, we were honored to be there for him.January 17, 2011 at 8:34 pm #3026
Kudos to Mark Wells for a great job as Ride Captain and to Julie Duiker for her Flag Wrangling and to all who participated. Great mission folks. The family and friends were very appreciative.
