    On a very beautiful God’s day, 7 patriots took time out of there busy day to stand in honor of SFC Mitchell. After the service, we took part in a procession to the cemetery. How respectful it was that nearly all approaching vehicles pulled over to show respect. At the cemetery, full military honors were rendered. .
