  2. 9 PGR members gathered together to honor Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Lucas Fink. Chuck Holden was given control of the mission. Briefing went well. 10 static flags were put out on the boulevard in front of the Funeral Home. Flag line was set at the front entrance to the chapel and PGR took over doorman duties. After the service commenced, the flag line was dismissed and a debrief was held. At the end of the service, the US Navy folded and presented the flag to the Mother. PGR plaque was then presented to the Mother which caused many tears. The family and friends of Lucas were most appreciative of our presence. A very worthwhile and appreciated mission completed to the highest standards by our dedicated members.
