This Mission is now complete. Counting yours truly there were seven Patriot Guard members present. We had 3 cages, 1 Spyder and 4 Bikes. One of the bike riders was Nathan Myers, the Father of Pvt. Jesse Myers. He rode in the procession to the Cemetery. The Family and friends of Pvt. Meyers were very appreciative that we were there. Many of them stopped to talk with us on their way into the Chapel.
Thanks to Don Ferguson for Flag Wrangling today and to all the others who battled the cold, wet weather to make this mission a success. I hope you are all safely back home and thawing out a bit. Thank you again.
