    13 bikes and 3 cages, 18 flag holders showed up in Lockhart for SMSgt Barrett's funeral service and interment. Family was very appreciative. SMSgt Barrett's widow personally came out to the bikes and hugged all who attended. Fine job everyone, thanks for all those who helped.

    From the family of SMgt Barrett:

    “My mother, family, and myself want to give our sincerest thanks to you and the rest of the Patriot Guard for the flag lines at our father's funeral. It was very touching and moving to see such support from everyone.

    I look forward to assisting in the near future with flag lines myself.
