Please attend to honor this marine’s service to our nation.
We enjoyed a perfect spring day to ride out in the countryside where 7 Austin PGR members stood in honor of Mr. Albert G. Arzola, Jr. today at both his memorial and graveside services in Taylor, TX. Mr. Arzola’s family were very grateful of our presence and all of his son’s and nephews walked our flagline to thank us personally and shake our hands. My thanks to Don for your artistic display of static flags at both services and to all of you guys who took time out of your day to make a difference for this family. Rest in peace and Godspeed Mr. Arzola and thank you for your service to our country!
