    Once again short notice was not a problem for our riders. We had 16 in attendance, with 12 bikes, providing a fitting final farewell to another of the greatest generation. And it was great to see Robert ride up as well.

    Mr. Fox's family, including Mrs. Fox, all came out and walked the flag line, thanking each of us for being there. It was our privilege to stand for this American hero.

    Rest in Peace, Sgt Fox.
