    We had a total of 10 hardy Patriots who braved the chilly rains and drizzle today to stand in honor of MSG Jesse Greene. Don put out an awesome display of static flags around the perimeter that was visually stunning…thank you Don! I thank each of you who took time out of your day to honor MSG Greene, it sure showed in the faces of the arriving guests how profoundly we made a difference. Rest In Peace MSG Greene and thank you for your years of gallant service to our Nation!

    Jim Callison, R/C
