I would like to add to Mark's post with a big thank you to the 20 riders who got up very early for the ride to New Braunfels to stand tall for LCpl. John Farias upon his arrival at the airport. The ride to the staging area near Cabela's was pleasantly cool. I think that most of us did not even think about the heat later during the solemn ride to the funeral home because of the respect shown by the citizens who lined the entire route. I'm sure that many eyes were sweating though.
What you do does make a big difference in people's lives. I am proud to ride with you.
