Seven bikes and five cages carried a total of twelve Patriot Guard Members (including a new member, Chuck) to honor Cpl Brown at his memorial service. Cpl Brown"s mother, although distraught, came to where we were staging to thank us personally for being there for her son. Don arrived early and did a great job on the flags. Thanks to all who braved another record heat day to attend.
