On the Saturday before Memorial Day, a statewide email was sent calling for PGRiders to make a 20-mile Welcome Home escort late that same day. I got my email in the early afternoon and staging was set for the late afternoon.
I wasn’t there but others were.
Mom and Dad Bowman were there.
And so were a dozen others.
They gathered at the side of the river north of Byron.
USA SPC Jason Lawalton arrived.
They greeted him,
and then they took him home.
A half-hour ride got them to his home north of Forreston.
Old Glory was everywhere.
A fine warrior was safely back home.
Thanks to Ride Captains Jerry Ludwig and Bill Hermann.
And thanks to Sue Diehl for the photography.
