Typically the sight of a police helicopter will send me scurrying indoors.
This time I stayed outside to watch police helicopters flying in formation above the funeral procession of firefighter Greg Garza who died in an accident while answering a fire call.
A large church just north of us opens its doors for first responder's funerals. There have been quite a few of these funerals in recent years.
Greg Garza, like so many of our first responders, served in the Marines before becoming a firefighter.
Just outside my neighborhood fire trucks raised a giant flag on an overpass to salute the procession.
Here's to all the Veterans who served and continue to serve their communities!
