There were 20 bikes for the procession to Ft Sam Houston National Cemetery, comprised of riders from Centex, San Antonio, and Austin. Five of these were first mission riders.
Our escort consisted of two motor units and one patrol unit, with two of the officers being from Granger P.D. and one from Round Rock P.D. They did a great job of getting us there safely!
Mike, the San Antonio RC, was there and had everything ready for our arrival.
Thanks to all who took time from their day to honor this Vietnam veteran and family. They appreciated you being there for them today.
Hope all made it home safely…….
