    Thank you all for coming to stand for my uncle. The family was very appreciative.


    13 PGR members stood the line to Honor S/SGT Winston Johnson. It was an opportunity to support one of our own, Steve " Cannonball" Von Roeder. Thanks for those that were there to show the family that we appreciated the service that Mr. Johnson gave to this country.
