    Please make plans to honor this man for his dedication and service to our country.


    I would like to thank the 13 people who, on very short notice, braved the 5pm traffic in Austin to stand tall for Major (Ret) Sturdevant.
    It was also a first mission for one of our members.
    William's wife and granddaughter thanked us for honoring their loved one, saying that he would be very proud that we were there.
    Once again you have made a difference in the lives of our heroes and their families.
