    Beautiful day for the service for SSG Bruciaga. Nicki was there early and had a couple of flags posted out front for the funeral service and also at the cemetery. We had 6 bikes, a trike and a cage. There were 9 people in the flag line. Early morning temps dipped into the high forties in most places, so everyone was wide awake. Several friends and relatives took time to express their appreciation for our participation in the services.The LEO escort was superb, as usual. Soup Campbell.
