    Four PGR accompanied 1LT Knipscher and family from the funeral home in Georgetown to CTSVC in Killeen. We spoke with her husband and son who both expressed their thanks for our participation. It was our honor to do so.

    Three bikes led ahead of the hearse and a trike flying three beautiful flags followed behind it, followed by 6 or so family vehicles. All went smoothly and per plan.

    Thank you to those who attended. Godspeed, 1LT Knipscher. May He bring comfort to your family.
