NOTE: NEW LOCATION DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS BY MIRAMAR NATIONAL CEMETERY WILL BE USED UNTIL MIRAMAR NATIONAL CEMETERY RE-OPENS FOR VETERANS WITHOUT FAMILY.

The PGR will honor Veterans without Families by being at, and participating in, the Veteran's Full Military Honors funeral ceremonies -- we will stand in for the families who can't be there. A Flag Line will honor the Veterans as we show our appreciation and respect for their military service.

The Army Honor Guard will not be there; this week we are the Honor Guard and we are their family. I will bring the flag and Bugler Mike will bring and play the bugle.

This week we will honor the following heroes:

Hughes, William              Airman Recruit              U.S. Navy
Griffith, Paul                   Captain                         U.S. Navy
Tatlock, Warren              Fireman                        U.S. Navy
Higdon, Howard              Fireman                        U.S. Navy
Rahder, Richard              Petty Officer 3rd Class    U.S. Navy

May the souls of these Veterans rest in peace beneath the green carpet of grass in a Nation they helped to keep free.
 
“We Are Their Family”
