  5. Hi, my name is Scott and am Ed’s youngest son, my family would like to sincerely thank everyone in the PGR that took the time out of their day to honor my father with the escort to the cemetery. We had a family gathering afterwards and this was the main topic of conversation by everyone. Many had never seen anything like this before and were touched by the support and acknowledgment of my father’s long and dedicated career in the Navy. I will be joining the PGR soon, as long as nobody objects to an Aprilia Tuono V4 being in the group 🙂

    Thank you again to everyone.

    V/R

    Scott MacDonald
