    It was a hot day yesterday for the 11 patriots that stood the line foe Lt. Col Jerry Bartholomew. We were able to utilize the shade from the building but when we relocated at the gravesite there was none to be had. Those in attendance pushed thru the heat. The service was short but dignified which helped. Thanks to Don and all his work. The way he had the flags setup we placed a member between them. It made for an illusion that there were twice as many.

    God Bless the family, those that attended and those that could not!
