    Saturday Sept 10, 2016, I was given the honor to be the R.C. for a friend I knew since High school. Dennis Mauer, epitomizes, the word hero. He lost both legs to a land mine, in the republic of Vietnam, in the year 1970. His own words, were , ” I was six foot tall, and poof, I was four foot tall.” No one ever heard him complain. during his life, he owned and operated his own excavation company, and upon retirement, he Grew homegrown produce, and sold it at his roadside stand. He was a man that lost both legs, for his country, and, would tell you, I would have done it again.
    The day of his funeral, was clear & Hot, we were assisted, by members of the warriors watch, and some American Legion riders. we were all there for The hero we were honoring. The funeral procession, traveled past his Home, garden, and roadside stand. the internment, was picture perfect, as three active duty Marines folded & presented the flag Our Hero’s plaque, had not arrived, and the presentation, will be made at the convenience of his family Marine, Rest in peace, Your mission is complete.
