    We had 12 patriots standing to honor MSG George Gott. It was a warm day, but thankfully we had some clouds and a breeze to keep us comfortable. Nicki posted flags at the cemetery in advance, and the rest of us road the short distance from the staging to the cemetery and formed our flag line about 10 minutes prior to the start of the service.

    There was a substantial turnout of friends and family. The USAF honor guard did a fine job as always, and MSG Gott’s sons shared some funny and poignant stories about their dad. You’ll enjoy reading his obituary.

    We welcomed new rider (new to us, anyway) Bob Watson. Thanks to all who took time out of their Saturday to honor this long serving USAF veteran.

    RIP, MSG George Gott
