    Nice turnout of 9 Patriots today to stand in honor of Carroll "Karo" Morrison, a US Army veteran from the Korean War, at both his memorial service in N Austin and internment service in Liberty Hill. We also had in our company on both parts of this mission, first-time rider Don from San Antonio. Thank you Don and welcome! It was a long ride from N Austin to Liberty Hill but it went "fairly" smooth thanks to the outstanding efforts of the LEO escort the whole way. "Karo" Morrison's wife of 61 years and his family were extremely appreciative of our presence at both of his services. Thank you all who attended today to honor this fine gentleman and thank you Karo for your service to our Country, may you rest in peace!

    Jim Callison, R/C
