The family has requested PGR accompaniment of the procession from Kyle to Ft Sam. This is not LEO escorted. Departure time from the funeral home is planned for 1:00 pm. It is an approximately 1 hr ride with no stops.
Nine Patriots attended the honors for captain Bogue; none chose to ride down to SA due to personal reasons. The funeral director did inform me that LEO had been obtained. About ten American Legion Riders showed up for a service ceremony and escort to FT. Sam Houston.
