    We had four PGR standing for Capt Patrick Coon this morning. It was overcast and relatively cool, which helped with the 45 minute flag line.

    Richard and I stayed to join the procession to the cemetery. There was no lead funeral car, so the two of us were behind the hearse. We had four LEO providing excellent protection and guidance to get us there safely. As planned, when the procession reached the turnoff to the cemetery we continued straight and called it a day.

    Thank you Lance for bringing flags. May God Bless Capt Coon, and bring his family peace.
