8:50 – 9:20 am – Staging
9:20 am – Briefing
9:30 am – Flag line
Wx: High 91 deg. mostly sunny.
Notes: Bring water for yourself and a friend. Following the start of the funeral service we will strike the flag line and relocate to the Capital Parks Cemetery in Pflugerville to form a flag line for the interment service. A few big flag bikes will stay behind to accompany the family and coach from Ramsey. There will not be a law enforcement escort for the procession.
It was a nice morning for the 8 PGR members that showed up to Honor Artie Young that served in WWII. As is not uncommon the family walked the flag line to thank those that stood the line. The highlight for me was a young man around the age of 8 talked the line and thanked us for our service. I believe he will be a future leader and carry After the service 4 big flag bikes joined the procession to the cemetery where we meet 2 of the patriots that stood the line. We formed a second line for a short and dignified service. God bless the family, those that attended and those you could not.
