It was a nice morning for the 8 PGR members that showed up to Honor Artie Young that served in WWII. As is not uncommon the family walked the flag line to thank those that stood the line. The highlight for me was a young man around the age of 8 talked the line and thanked us for our service. I believe he will be a future leader and carry After the service 4 big flag bikes joined the procession to the cemetery where we meet 2 of the patriots that stood the line. We formed a second line for a short and dignified service. God bless the family, those that attended and those you could not.
