    Completed Mission: 14 patriots showed up to honor PFC Alton Eaglin today. As usual, Don showed up way early and had flags strategically placed so the arriving riders had no trouble finding the burial plot. Thanks again Don! PFC Eaglin’s brother, sister and sister-in-law made the trip from Louisiana for the service. There were no military honors, however, we did present the burial flag to the PFC’s brother who was very grateful. The family seemed surprised and very pleased by our presence at the service. The family, Pastor, Funeral Director and staff all made it a point to thank us for being there. RIP PFC Eaglin.
