A great big THANK YOU to the 10 riders that showed up on a week day to honor Mathew & his service to our country. And what can U cay about our Flag Wrangler, Sam. He got in late last night from a trip but still showed up to save the day although tired. And if that were not enough, he than took the flags to a 2nd mission funeral to serve another veteran. Thank U Sam for your outstanding service.
