Sacketts arrive for Westfield reunion

An early arrival at the Westfield 2012 Sackett reunion was Mike Sackett, seen here after bravely fighting off unseen attackers on the highway.

Despite losing a large part of the front of his car in the attack, the quick-thinking Sackett, determined to miss none of the reunion's exciting events, tore off the damaged front with his bare hands, stuffed it in the trunk, and completed his journey undaunted and on time.
