Ten patriots stood the flag line in honor of CW2 Botek's long service to our nation. Don did a great job as usual getting there early and staking a number of US Flags at the front of the church. The Army Honor Guard was on hand with rifles, and his son James said they were able to line up a live bugler which was good to hear.

We departed after the start of the service and before the military honors portion took place. Thank you again to everyone who gave up part of their Saturday to honor this veteran and support his family.
