    Patriot Guard riders circled up and removed their caps Wednesday morning at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery."Before they come over the hill, ya'll pray with me," said Rick Crabb, standing in the center. "We thank You for the opportunity we have to honor their service."
    Four black he****s crested the hill, greeted by dozens of snapping American flags and hands raised in salute. Crabb finished his prayer.
    "And now these four men don't have anyone but You and us. And we thank You that You are here with us," he said.
    The four deceased veterans received full military honors in one ceremony, a first at the cemetery.
    But there were no photos for us to know their faces; no widows or children to weep for them.
    We don't know much more than than their names. Lt. Col. Billy Corn of the Texas State Guard read them off, moving from casket to flag-draped casket.

    Sad end, but they made their conribution through service at the very least and the service didn't forget them, in the end.
    On to their eternal reward.
    Rest in Peace.
