Welcome home PFC Anthony (AJ) Boswell USA
Welcome home PFC Anthony (AJ) Boswell USA Santa Ana CA 11 Oct 10. Courtney our "cookie girl" at Wednesday Flag ceremony is meeting her brother returning from duty in Iraq and it is an excellent chance to honor his service to our country and also a tribute to Courtney and thank her for being at nearly every Wednesday with cookies for everyone.
A surprising number of patriot Guard, American Legion, Star and other riders showed up at the staging area near John Wayne Airport, I estimated approximately 50-60 motorcycles plus a few trikes and vehicles. Very impressive and an opportunity to give a well deserved thank you to the Boswell family.
We met at a Mc Donald's around the corner from the airport, had a briefing and some introductions, including a couple from England riding around the country and rode in from Victorville to be here with some other Harley riders. The ride to the airport was impressive with all the flags and motorcycles plus we even had an escort to fly through the lights. The escort is one member that has a police looking motorcycle and even dresses like the escorts for funerals, people stopped anyway.
