    It was a beautiful day in the country as 5 PGR members were joined by 2 guests from out of state to make a total of 7 in the flag line. As usual, Nicki was on top of it, arriving early and staking flags at the entrance to the cemetery and at the point where the casket was unloaded. We provided 3 pallbearers to assist with the unloading and placement of the casket. The Bluffton Cemetery board president was there to assist with our planning for the ceremony. Both before and after the service, family members including the widow assisted by her daughter, made the effort to walk the flag line and personally thank each member for our participation. Thanks to Warren, Dave and Steve for making the effort to get to this service. Debrief was minimal and included presenting our out of state guest participants with a PGR MISSION ACCOMPLISHED pin.
    Soup Campbell, Ride Captain.
