We had 11 PGR on hand to honor SGT Jabot's service at the funeral portion of this mission. Luckily we all ended up standing in the shade. A group of non-PGR motorcycles showed up about 10 minutes into the mission, and Assistant RC Soup invited them to join the flag line, doubling its size. Nice going, Soup!
Thank you to RC In-Training Soup, and Flag Wrangler Nicki for the great job today. Soup handled the procession up to CTSVC this afternoon, so he can report on that portion when he gets home and can cool off some.
RIP SGT Jabot, a tragic loss. And may God comfort this friends and family left behind.September 20, 2019 at 1:23 pm #5390
Charles and I were accompanied by 4 riders from Combat Vets, 9 riders from Wind Therapy Freedom Riders and 1 independent rider from the Killeen area in the LEO escorted procession from Burnet to CTSV. Riders from WTFR helped the Burnet City and County police with road guard duty. We were surprised by Don who had proceeded on his own, getting there way early, with water for us. Don joined us in the flag line as did Joker from CTSV. We stood down after the service and before the casket was removed. After the family and friends departed we put all the flags back in storage. Thanks to Joker for handling the Army flag during the gun salute and taps. Thanks to Don, Huey John, Gibby(the independent rider)for helping store the flags and of course thanks to Holly for making sure they were there. Soup
