44. Good for him!

We lost a couple of local kids in Iraq and Afghanistan. At one funeral I attended (I knew his dad through work), I saw a lot of bikers show up with American flags. Now, nobody from WBC showed up (thankfully it was just a rumor, even though I did want to print off a couple of signs). Turns out it was a rumor. But the family appreciated it, just as a show of support from former vets.

I know some guys who do it from the perspective of defense, but most I know do it as a show of support for their fallen comrade, even from another generation. THAT is what this should be about.
