    @M.Hatfield brought this up in a thread in the Supporters area . I think it deserves a wider audience .

    I have sent a request to the Patriot Riders on his behalf . We will see what comes of it . If nothing else we can remember him here .

    In his fighting days he probably could have kicked our butts up and down trails all day if he had wanted to. Thank God for our fighting soldiers old and young.

    It appears word of him is getting around .


    “The funeral will include a police escort for the hearse from the funeral home to the church. A pipe and drum band, a 21 gun salute and the playing of Taps will be part of the final services.”

    Amen .

    Thanks to @M.Hatfield for bringing this to our attention. I haven’t gotten sentimental and misty eyed in a while .

    I wish I would have seen this yesterday. I would have tried to make it to his funeral. My friend lives in the area and its about half hr from my job.

    RIP.

    Thank you for your service to this country. I will never forget all the sacrifices made by many like you. I am trying to teach my children the value of all of this and I pray I will be a adequate teacher.
