    Six patriots stood the flag line for SP4 Mayfield. Nicki posted flags at the main entrance and a couple to mark the route to the chapel. Keith, Nicki and myself were there to render honors when the hearse arrived and were invited to help move the casket and flowers to the chapel. This was a very well attended service, a testament to SP4 Mayfield’s service to his community in addition to his military service. Many attendees offered “thanks” for our participation. The flag line stood down a few minutes after the service started.
    RIP SP4 McKinley Mayfield, III
