    Seven PGR members came to honor this hero today. The 2 from Leander came the farthest. It was a beautiful morning with moderate temperatures and a nice breeze and plenty of shade for the staging and the flag line.

    Several family members stopped by the staging area to express their appreciation for our presence at the service. Of particular note is the fact that the hero’s sister Linda stayed for the briefing and was able to add some details regarding his service that would otherwise not have been known.

    The flag line was uneventful and we were able to cover the 2 entrances with the members that were present. All members really appreciated the shade and breeze. It was a very successful mission that garnered several comments of thanks for us being there.

    RIP Sergeant Charlesa Ray Calhoun

    Thank you to all who put forth the effort to attend. You were clearly appreciated.

    Soup Campbell, Ride Captain
