    What a great turn out for such a short notice. Thank you all so much for showing once again what respect & honor means to our military families & friends.
    We had 35 PGR at the funeral home with all but 12 going on ahead to establish a flag line at the church. The 12, escorded the family & LTC Nelson to the church.
    Thanks too to the 6 who stayed at the church to be pall bearers for LTC Nelson's ride back to the funeral home for later transportation to Arlington National Cemetery.
