Good turn out to honor SFC Juan Jose Velex. We had 9 form a flag line at the Church while 3 of our own and SFC Velex's son (one his fathers bike) escorted them from the funeral home to the Church. We all joined in together along with 3 friends of the family (on bikes) to the grave site where we established a second flag line.
