    Please try to make this ride to show our appreciation for this hero and his family.


    Had a good turnout of Eleven PGR members at the funeral in Georgetown. Three were also able to join a similar number from CenTex on the flag line line for the Inurnment service at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery. The family expressed a heartfelt appreciation to the PGR. At our staging Mr. Moreland's son actually dropped off an ice chest full of ice cold water for us. JOB WELL DONE!!
