There were 7 Patriots standing tall in honor of LTC (US Army Ret.) Eugene Cargile today in Leander. Thankfully there was a nice breeze we all enjoyed in the covered area where we set our flag-line near the church entrance. LTC Cargile’s family, including his wife Eddie, made a point to come outside and thank each one of us personally with heart-felt gratitude. In talking to them all, we found out his daughter rides with the PGR in Washington DC and she was especially grateful of our presence today to honor her father. Our presence today was really well received and appreciated and I thank all who took time out of your day to make a difference. It was also really nice to see an old friend of our Austin PGR group, former PGR Ride Captain Juan Gonzales, in attendance of the memorial service to LTC Cargile. Thank you for your dedicated service to our country LTC Cargile and Godspeed good sir!
