With 2 missions at the same time today, I am really pleased at the great turn out in Bastrop for this Marine. We had 24 total including 8 rider friends of Abdu. New to PGR, transplants from Oregon, Chris & Tabatha joined us from Buda. Double duty RC Terry brought the flags he had from Thurs. mission. Judging from the many many comments, U once again showed how really important it is for all of us to show up at these mission to show respect to the fallen & their families & friends.
Thanks to each of U for all U do to get here & stand the flag line. It means so very very much.
