This Mission is now complete. It was obvious that LTC Osborne was a very prominent and loved member of the community where he lived. The East Lake Fellowship Church where he was Pastor at the time of his passing over flowed with Family and friends. Many of those attending personally thanked each Patriot Guard member present today.
I also want to thank our PGR members present this morning. We had 9 members with 6 bikes, 1 trike and 2 cages attending. A special thanks to Don for bringing the Flags. I hope each and every one of you made it safely back home.
