    A combination of two and three wheelers plus two cages participated in the Mission. Twelve PGR members stood in flag line honoring SSG prior to the service. Ten stood in his honor at the grave side service. The service was attended by a small number of mourners making the presence by the Patriot Guard greatly appreciated by the immediately family. It also added a high degree of satisfaction to those of us attending that the family was so greatly and emotionally appreciative for our presence. Thanks to all in attendance.
