  1. I extend my most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Russell H. Weber, US Army WWII Veteran. During this most difficult time, I pray you peace. I will forever be grateful for his service, sacrifice, and dedication to our country. Rest easy now, Sir…those you have left behind to carry on without you have the watch.

  2. I was honored to be the Ride Captain for this Mission. I was assisted by Steve Jensen that helped with staging and the escort. It was a beautiful Wisconsin summer day. There were 4 of us standing the flag line at the church. We also had four bikes in the escort, led by our veterans son-in-law Phil. There were 5 of us holding flags at the cemetery. The family was very appreciative and the Mission went very well.
