Over 60 flags from the Patriot Guard Riders in Westbrook CT

I drove Dad down to Westbrook, CT to participate in the flag ceremony honoring Jean H Joyal. Jean was one of my mother's brothers. He passed away February 24, 2009.

Albert Joyal coordinated this tribute to his brother. The Westbrook Honor Guard performed the flag ceremony, gun salute, and taps with the full military protocol. They were surrounded by over 60 flags from the Patriot Guard Riders.

It was an impressive and moving ceremony.
