Two PGR accompanied the LEO escorted procession from Pflugerville to Granger. The weather forecast proved better than reported, with partly cloudy blue skies and temps feeling like 90s for the 35 mile ride through the backroads (and some highway riding) to the Holy Cross Cemetery in Granger.
Upon arrival we met up with the Flag Wrangler for a total of 2 US flags and the Army flag on the line at the burial site. Full military honors with taps and the presenting of the American flag to CPL Messex’ wife Vickie was performed by two Army soldiers.
A special thanks to the LEO escort who got us there safely and to the family for requesting our presence during their time of heart-felt loss.
