    Please attend to honor this marine’s service to our country.


    We had four PGR at the cemetery to honor Mr. Russo’s service. Don did a great job as usual posting flags in advance at the gravesite. Two uniformed Marine’s folded and presented the flag, and a bugler from Bugles Across America sounded live taps. It was nice to hear compared to the prerecorded version.

    Thank you to those who attended today. RIP, Marine.
