    Flag Line to Honor a Vietnam Veteran
    Fairfax, Virginia - 21 Mar 2018

    PGR had the great honor to be invited to stand a flag line for the presentation of USA Michael Arlin Balzer's Silver Star and Purple Heart to the City of Fairfax.

    Spc4 Michael Arlin Balzer was drafted after graduation from Fairfax High School in 1963. Mike served with A Company, 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry, 4th Infantry Div. USARV (The Alpha Gators). Mike was killed in Tay Nihn Province South Vietnam on 03/21/1967.

    During his years of service to our great nation he received the Silver Star, Presidential Unit Citation, National Defense Service Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, Purple Heart, Vietnam Campaign Medal, and Vietnam Service Medal. Michael's friend and our PGR brother Philip M. Mahoney will be donating Michael's Silver Star and Purple Heart, along with a photo of the 49th ALPHA Gator annual reunion that took place in Ohio, to the Fairfax City Museum. Please help us give him the long-awaited Welcome Home like the City of Fairfax has never seen.
