What a nice surprise at staging. The former Commander of the Arlington National Cemetery stopped to thank us & what the PGR does. He related how much it means, not only to the family but to the military as well.
Several folks walked the line thanking all 8 of us personally. You could tell it meant of lot to the family that we took time out of our lives to honor their veteran.
Niki & soup prestaged several flags leading to the entrance of the church & 2 more at the street entrance. Riders commented that it really helps locating the correct drive.
Hearing from the Commander, family & friends, really points out just how much your presents at these services really mean to all. U "DO" make a difference.
