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
