What an honor it was for all of us to stand for this young Marine. Even with the high heat, 19 patriots, including a couple that just needed to hold a flag, stood tall & proud. Upon breaking the flag line, several hurried off to GT to stand yet another flag line. Also in our line were 2 Leather Neck M/C members. After an hour & 1/2 down time, we joined the procession to CTSVC.
Thanks Don for pre staking some flags. It really helps & increases the visual effect.

Semper Fi Marine. You are now in His presents forever.
