Today we had 10 bikes show up at the staging in Hutto, and 7 more met us in Rockdale at the funeral home. One rider came from Bryan-College Station. The casket was placed in the Harley-Davidson Hearse and, joined by numerous cages, we had a procession to the cemetery in Milano.
The family and friends were very appreciative of your attendance to honor Sarge. Thank you all for taking the time out of your day to be there.
Thanks to Bob for wrangling the flags, and Terry for handling the tail gunner duties.
