Thank you to the 21 folks who rode and stood for SPC Sevier. We had a lady rider up from Sequin on a Spyder with a very cool US Flag paint job and another who rode up from Houston. I know Centex was busy with missions yesterday; we missed the folks we usually get from up that way. Special thanks to flag wrangler Mark Brittain for the flags and water, as it was surprisingly warm and humid as the day progressed.
Also thanks to RC Chuck Murphy for a smooth mission & Sam Warren for helping set up the fine LEO support through Austin, Lockhart, Luling, and Gonzales. The funeral itself was pretty large, with a long procession (both in time and vehicles) down to the Yoakum cemetery.
We are forever grateful to warriors such as SPC Sevier who serve and protect our country. May he rest in peace. And may we bring some measure of comfort to his family by our presence.
