Eight patriots braved a pretty cool, gusty breeze to pay tribute to this fallen hero. Nicki showed up early and staked flags at the entrance to the funeral home. The entire service was at the grave site which was within walking distance from the funeral home parking lot where we staged so as to not interfere with family traffic. The sunshine was a welcome change from the week or 2 of overcast but the wind was a little chilly. Several family members walked the flag line to thank each individual for being there to honor their loved one. It was a good and appreciated mission. Thanks all who made the effort to attend.
