    The Austin\Centex portion of the Patriot Guard Mission for Sgt. Major Henry Thomas Murphy Jr. is now complete. His Service was at 2 pm today in Marble Falls. There were 12 Bikes, 1 Trike and 2 cages, with a total of 22 members attending.

    I want to thank each and every one of you in attendance today. A special thanks to Sam for " Flag Wrangling", Harry for assisting me, and also I want to thank my grand daughters Tyler and Heather for helping get a total count on vehicles and members in attendance.

    The Family conveyed their thanks during the briefing and several times afterwards. You guys and gals never cease to amaze me. We do make a difference. And we do it because we all know it is simply "The Right Thing To Do".

    Thanks again to all of you and I hope everyone made it home safe and sound.
