Four PGR Members honored Mr. Rodriguez and his service to our country. One big flag bike rode in honor behind the hearse in the LEO led procession. Outstanding effort on the part of Flag Wrangler Don Ferguson for making both missions. Bad weather and traffic was against him but he still arrived with the flags just in the nick of time. The family was very grateful for our presence.
