    Today the rain gave us a break and did not show up during the mission. We were also blessed when we were joined on the line by members of the family/friends, the Team Red, White, and Blue group (Enriching Veterans Lives), and the Blue Star Moms! Hope I did not miss anyone. Combined with our riders, we had 28 people holding flags and standing tall to honor MSG Fiero.
    Thanks to Keith and Terry for their help, and Don for wrangling all the flags.
