We had seven hardy souls standing in the cold breeze to honor TSgt Wheeler today which included two tough hombres who rode there in the 30 deg weather and intermittent sleet.
Many family members stepped out to take our picture and thank us for being there.
Thank you Don for posting the flags by the street.
RIP Sgt Wheeler, thank you for stepping forward all those years ago.
