Completed mission: Michael Patrick Humphrey, 48, USMC veteran.
We had a great turnout of 14 Patriots who stood tall for Mr. Humphrey today. A group of his service buddies and close friends who were from Chicago came over to our group before the briefing to thank us all and shake our hands…they were most appreciative to see us there and for doing what we do. There was an extremely large turnout for the service and a lot of the folks passing by our flag lines smiled and said thanks to us, and we were thankful to be there. Also, we had (2) new riders in our ranks today, Carl, from Dripping Springs, and Steve, I believe from the Houston area…thanks much for being there guys and welcome! Special thanks to Nikki and Soup for flag wrangling, cold water, and for setting out the extra flags near the church walkway and thanks to Don for setting out flags at the church entrance…nice visual and nice touch goes to y'all!

I'm originally from Iowa.
I lived in Wisconsin for 30+ years so I am a true Cheesehead.
Please remember my lifelong friend and Gold Star Mother today as her son, Cpl Adam Wolff USMC was killed on 6-20-2014.
Today 7-16, was his and his twin brother's birthday, needless to say there is a lot of pain still emanating from just below the surface.
Deb Christy is the Gold Star Mother.
Thank you for the acceptance today, I look forward to standing for more that are unable to stand for themselves.
