The funeral director, Mark MaCafferty worked with us a few weeks ago for the father of a Combat Vets member. Not being able to arrange military honors he contacted us, knowing it would be last moment. He hopes we can muster at least two to fold the flag at the cemetary. Im sure we can provide more than two wwr members to show our respect to this fallen Vietnam Vereran. Please join us, cage if you want, being there is more important. Thanks in advance, T......standing by in Bucks.

It went great, 4 of our Vietnam Veteran members folded the American Flag that was draped over our hero's casket and I presented it to his son, our guys practiced during the mass and got it right at the cemetery. The Smith family could not have been more pleased with our participation. Great job T, Lee, Fungi & Peeps. RIP Mr.Smith
