    We had 14 people stand the flag line to welcome our veterans back from D.C.. We had 7 PGR members and 7 other individuals, mostly from the American Legion and the Combat Vets Motorcycle Association. Also standing at the end of our flag line (but without flags) were 6 members of the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department Honor Guard. They had associates of theirs on the Honor Flight. One big change is that we only line up on one side of the aisle now. Family members now sit on the other side of the aisle and we don't want to block their view. We are standing much closer together now but it still works. Since we had a total of 20 people standing in line on Saturday, we should be able to fit 4 more in to accommodate our 24 maximum limit. We were extremely well received by the crowd when we walked in and again when we followed the procession out. Our contact Laura from the S&S Board of Directors commented to me how glad they were to have us there. All went well and it is a real privilege to be able to honor our veterans on their return and shake their hand and say "Welcome Home"!
