    Riders, back in January we participated in the ground breaking ceremony for a new adapted home for US Army SGT Jason Castille being built by Operation Finally Home.

    This house is now finished, and we've been invited back to be part of the ceremony at which it will become the Castille family home.

    Date/Time: Friday, 22 June 2018. Ceremony begins at 10:00 am at the homesite at the Saratoga Farms subdivision, located south of Hwy 290 at 95 in Elgin, TX.

    Staging Location: Providence-Jones Family Funeral Home, 604 TX-95, Elgin, TX 78621.

    9:15 am – 9:45 am Staging
    9:45 am briefing
    KSU to the home site per RC and LEO instruction, a short 3 min ride south on Hwy 95

    Wx: Hi 91 deg, partly cloudy.

    Ride Captain: Keith Longacre, keithlongacre@att.net, (512) 751-8955
    Flag Wrangler: Don Ferguson

    Notes: Fly your big flags! Upon our arrival at the staging location we will have a chance to visit with the Sgt Castille and his family. We will then accompany him and his family in a short law enforcement escorted procession to the home site where we will quickly dismount and form a flag line for the 30 min home presentation ceremony.


    If anyone is interested, there is a Whataburger at 12003 E. US 290, Manor. U can get breakfast & a free senior coffee. It's about 20 minutes from the staging. I plan on being there around 8AM.


    A dozen patriots shared a really neat day with Sgt Castille & his family. We all got a chance for some one on one with him at the staging. He really impressed us with his super positive attitude & Gung Ho spirit. It was very apparent who lives in his heart.
    God bless you Jason and may you continue to be a blessing to others.
