PGR members Don, Keith B. Soup, Charles, Burt & myself. were very honored to have been invited to stand with respect for Cpl Washington. After the 1&1/2 service, we led his procession to Evergreen Cemetery where military honors were accorded. Rain threaten but we stayed dry. Even made it home w/o rain. Thanks everyone.
