12 bikes and 2 cages showed up to honor PO3 Sladek in Taylor. Family was appreciative and Taylor Police did an outstanding job. Logistics at the church was a little tricky just because of the design but in consultation with RC Longacre, we managed an acceptable flag line. Many people, including the Navy Honor Guard, came through the flag line and shook our hands and thanked us for doing what we do.
