The funeral home in Sistersville


Patriot Guard and Legion Guard Riders - some from hundreds of miles away


Bob Dunn rode his bike here from New Palestine, Ohio.
Bob's uncle, Robert Mansell, was part of the Dixon ('603) B-24 crew, also shot down in Palau


At attention as remains are placed in the hearse


Honor and respect


More than a few turned out to honor Jack Arnett.
This countryside is VERY much like the hills of central Babeldaob


Honor and respect


Yes, it is


Incredible turnout by Patriot Guard and Legion Guard


See the roof of a house through the trees?
When Jack was a boy, he used to play in the yard of that house.


Frannie Weekley, Regent of the DAR, addresses the group
