    We had 10 for the flag line today to honor the US Army service of Mr. Harvey. Thanks much to the Centex folks who joined us from "up north".

    Many folks came up to us during our staging to thank us, and our short ride to the cemetery had an impromptu LEO escort. Thank you, Florence PD! Gotta love small town Texas.

    Don had staked some flags at the gravesite in advance, and the cemetery ceremony was brief. We were on our way back out in 20 minutes.

    RIP, PV2 Samuel Harvey.
