Without public notice, about 64 Minutemen volunteers suddenly reappeared Friday afternoon along state Highway 92, between Miller and Ash canyons.

The familiar sight of retirees in lawn chairs scanning the Huachuca Mountains through binoculars brought honks and thumbs-up gestures from passing motorists until the vigil ended Sunday afternoon.

"I'm fully dedicated to this thing, to save America," explained Freddy Puckett, a retiree from Cochise.

Thank God for these dedicated and brave Americans. They are some of the true patriots we have left in this country... Keep up the great work!
