Honor - Henry J. Karnisky, Veteran
Rochester, New York
25 Jan 2017

About the Mission:
PGR members;

We have been given the honor of standing a flag line for one of the Greatest Generation. CBM (Chief Boatswain Mate) Henry J. Karnisky served in the Coast Guard during WWII and has passed at the age of 97 yrs.

This is very short notice but I am hopeful for a respectful turnout by my PGR brothers and sisters.

There will not be any honorable transfer nor escort to cemetery. This is flag line only at the church. Please bring your clean 3X5 flag.
