Walter “Skip” Peltz Comment

  1. Another well received mission. We has 9 attendees with 2 bikes and 6 cages. All were seasoned veterans of the flag line. Chuck Post was given the lead for this mission. Flag folding training was held before the mission brief. Mission briefing went well. Flag line looked good especially with flag stands out. The forecast for snow was wrong and the temps were cold but manageable. Plaque presentation went well. Debrief went well. No unusual events to report.
