Steve: on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA), Chapter 915, Austin, thank you for providing ~ three dozen Patriot Guard Riders for the POW/MIA Recognition Ceremony at the Texas State Cemetery on 18 Sep 09. The ride-in was a tremendous start for the Recognition Ceremony, and having all of the PGRs forming a semi-circle with their flags behind the guests and dignitaries added a great deal to the ceremony.
An article has been submitted to Jim Boyd, Editor, Texas Vietnam Veteran News which will appear in our next edition.
Once again: thanks.
John A Miterko
POW/MIA Recognition Ceremony Coordinator
