Editor, Times-Union:

My name is Russ Bauer.

I am with the Indiana Patriot Guard Riders.

Last Saturday (8/29), McHatton-Sadler Funeral Home put on an IPGR Appreciation Day. The mayor read a proclamation and we presented an Honor & Sacrifice Flag to the family of Phil Hochstetler.

We had a nice meal, then the local PDs then escorted us through town to the VFW.

I wish to add a thank you to John Sadler and company, Warsaw and Winona Lake PD, Kosciusko County Sherriff’s Office, Mayor Thallemer and Hogs R Wild.

Thanks!

Russ Bauer
