From the NYT--

"Green grass, blue sky, white headstones — and the Patriot Guard, in line, in leather, holding up their flags. A color guard. A salute from Marine Corps rifles. Taps.

"Who are you masked men?" asked an old-timer in the red garrison cap of the Marine Corps League.

"Patriot Guard Riders," Mr. Deale explained.

"Well, it's impressive," the old-timer said. "Very impressive."

Then the dead man's mother walked the line of riders and, with her son's flag tucked beneath her arm, shook each and every hand."


Patriot Guard gets an assist from President Bush.
