Legion Riders pay tribute to fallen warrior

More than 100 American Legion Riders gathered in Broken Bow this past weekend for the organization's State Romp. Sunday morning, the group held a special tribute at the Broken Bow Cemetery, where they conducted a wreath laying ceremony in honor of Michael Doheny, former Marine killed in Iraq in 2007.It was a somewhat gray, gloomy morning as just a few light raindrops fell throughout the very touching service. Doheny's mother, sister and a host of close friends and commarades attended the ceremony. His brother, Rob, was unable to attend but sent a heartfelt letter which was read at the service.Excerpts from that letter and photos of the service will be featured in the June 14 Custer County Chief.
