The family of Mr. Leland Coon has requested the participation of the PGR in his funeral services. Mr. Coon is a Vietnam veteran and attained the rank of MSgt in the US Air Force.
Date/Time: Wednesday, 18 November 2009, 10:00 am service
Location: Cook Walden Funeral Home, 14501 I-35, Pflugerville, TX. We will stage at the funeral home.
Directions: From IH35 take the Howard Lane exit & proceed on the north bound service drive approx. 0.8 mi to Cook Walden Funeral Home. Entrance is on the right, opposite the expressway on-ramp. Map link: tinyurl.com/yf5pa6e
Burial to follow at 1:00 pm at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.
0830-0920 staging at the funeral home
0925 flag line in place.
Wx: Predicted high 68, clear to partly cloudy. Please bring your own drinking water.
Notes: Riders who can arrive early are asked to stand an early flag line for the arrival of the family, which is expected at 0900, after which we will have a break before standing the main flag line at 0925.
It is unclear at this time if there will be a procession from Pflugerville to CTSVC following the funeral. Semper Gumby. It may be that we proceed on our own up to Killeen in advance of the burial service. Centex PGR has been alerted of the family's request for a flag line at the cemetery for the interment service.
