Please carve out a bit of your Sunday afternoon to honor this US Army veteran.
We had 11 patriots in the flag line to honor Mr. Moore's service. Nice turnout especially on less than 24 hrs notice. James Retzolk attended his first mission today, and Don wrangled the flags once again. We lucked out and were in the shade for the most part. We heard many positive comments from the friends and family attending.
Thank you all for taking some time from your Sunday to do what we do to honor our veterans and their families.
