It was one beautiful Texas fall morning today and we had 5 Patriots standing in honor for MSG Donald Marquart, US Army (Ret). His daughter and son-in-law came over to our group before the service to thank us all and tell us how much they appreciated us being there. My thanks to all who took time out of their day today to honor MSG Donald Marquardt's long service to our country and his years of service helping veterans.
