Mission summary for 1st Sergeant William T. Doyle, US Army (Ret):
We had a nice turnout today with 12 PGR members standing tall on a beautiful day in Round Rock for 1st Sergeant Doyle. Even though it was under somber circumstances, the family was appreciative of our presence and a few came over to our gathered group to thank us personally. My thanks to all who took time out of their day to attend this mission and especially to Don, flag-wrangler extraordinaire!
