    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of this American Hero, a grateful nation mourns your loss. Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Hero for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    Mission Report
    All went well Friday at the John Pomeroy mission. Big turn-out of family and friends at St. Paul the Apostle church Friday morning. Introduced myself to a church administrator and explained who we are and what my plans were regarding our static and dynamic flag lines. She gave me the big okay and thanked all of us for what we do. While in the flag line, I had a discussion with a FH staff member who has heard of the PGR organization, but wasn’t clear on the makeup of our membership. Like many people I have met over the years, he thought we were all Harley riders. Three PGR standing this morning. Thank you Tom and Jenny.

    We had 7 PGR standing for the funeral service Friday afternoon at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, plus 1 outstanding bugler. It was obvious by talking to family members that Mr. Pomeroy was very much loved and will be dearly missed by all that knew him. His children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as his 56 year marriage, are true testaments to his character and the loving individual that he was.

    A week ago today we laid my father, John B. Pomeroy to rest. Thank you PGR volunteers!

    The following is a copy of my post in the new members section:

    Hello! Andy Pomeroy from the Hartland area, Village of Merton. I decided to join after experiencing such great honor and respect for my father, John B. Pomeroy, by the PGR. My family had a very moving and emotional experience due to the PGR presence at the funeral home, church and Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Dad was an Air Force vet and served in the late 1950's. He was very proud of the united States of America. He flew an American flag for many years on his flag pole along with a POW flag and when appropriate Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers flags.

    I look forward to meeting other volunteers and hopefully repaying the respect and honor so generously displayed for my father.

    Thank you all,
