Great turnout to stand for our PGR brother and Air Force Veteran. The flag line was joined by several members of the South Austin Riders Group (SARG) of which Ed was a dedicated member. In all there were 21 flags including the United States Air Force flag. Man-O-man it was beautiful sight seeing that many flags again…
Please accept our heartfelt thanks to you and other members of the Patriot Guard Riders that stood on the flag line for Edward Weidig on November 9th. It was beautiful. As one of you, I know Ed would have been tremendously honored. He was a wonderful father, friend and man, and I know many of you share our loss. God bless you for making his memorial so special.
