  2. Mission Accomplished.
    Twelve riders stood the flag line as three motorcycles led the coach and procession into shelter B for the final mission of Mr. Cunningham. His wife of 65 years, though very ill, arrived by ambulance behind her husband. I could see the Marine fighting to hold back tears as he presented the flag to Mrs. Cunningham as she lay on a stretcher surrounded by family an EMT’s This is what true love looks like..
