After Action Report - The surprise worked!
Sunday afternoon, September 20, 2015, many Patriot Guard Riders, American Legion members, other members of veterans groups and guests stood in honor of our Hero, WWII Army veteran Lt. Bill Knapp as he received the French Legion of Honor for his service in France during the Second World War. Bill's family was there as well as an added surprise to him. Believe me, there was not one dry eye in the room! This honor was made possible by the untiring work of Greg Hall, Joel Forman and our own Em.
