We had 14 patriots at today's mission, including one new rider, 8 year old Nate, grandson to Hugh, in his cub scout uniform. It was wonderful to see him and all the fine folks honoring SFC Giarrusso on this breezy day.

All went smoothly, and the flag lines looked sharp.

RIP, Al Giarrusso, and thank you for your long and faithful service.
