Regardless of what you think of the man who took over the presidency on Friday, it should be a point of pride for Garner residents that one of their own led the way in part of the pomp and circumstance that surrounds a presidential inauguration.
Marine Capt. Trey Grissom heads the unit that will lead the motorcade that travels through the inaugural parade route. It’s a small part, we know, but with all the trappings surrounding a presidential inauguration, there remains relatively few that get to be involved.
To have one of those people call Garner home is worth celebrating.
