Bob the Builder Award: Ron and his veteran funerals

Speaking of honoring soldiers properly....

Ron has attended 888 veteran's funerals in the last couple years.

His goal is 1,000.

If you didn't know him, you would think it would be sort of morbid to attend 888 funerals of people you don't know.  Especially while battling cancer.

Ron in a special volunteer veterans group.  A retired military honor guard of sorts.   This guard unit volunteers their time, gas, miles, and energy to attend every veteran funeral that they can to pay special military respects to the deceased.

For his untiring dedication, he was awarded the United States Presidential Citation for Service today.  :)

Good luck Ron.  Only 112 to go.
