Thursday's mission in Walburg went well. Many thanks to the 24 riders, including one first timer. 2 cages (including our flag Wrangler Mark Wells). APD Motors and Williamson County LEO were, as always, super helpful.
A big thank you to our brothers and sisters from CenTex that continue to come to AUS designated missions, especially on such short notice.
The family was very appreciative to the "strangers" that came to honor Mr. Maxey.
What we're doing for our fallen, the families and the communities in which they live is difficult to put into words. There is nothing but good that comes from what we do. I am proud to be amongst the Patriots that are YOU!April 1, 2010 at 4:46 pm #2553
