11:45 am – 12:15 pm Staging
12:15 pm – Mission Briefing
12:30 pm – Flag Line
Wx: Hi 88 degrees, clear skies
Notes: Arrive fed, fueled, and hydrated. Bring water for yourself and a friend. Following the funeral service there will be an LEO escorted procession to Cook Walden Capital Parks cemetery in Pflugerville where we will form a second flag line for the interment service.
We had eleven folks take time out of their day to honor Mr Boyett this afternoon. And thanks to Don for serving as flag wrangler yet again.
The clouds looked like they wanted to rain on us, but not a drop did we feel. The route from the church to the cemetery was a challenge for the three LEO motors, but we all arrived safely. Many, many of the family and friends walked the flag line to thank us for making their farewell special.
RIP George Boyett, thank you for your brave service.
A note of interest, particularly to the Marines. As I was leaving the cemetery one of Mr. Boyett's sons rolled down his window next to me at the light to thank me again for our presence. When I asked him, he told me his father served under Chesty Puller at the Chosin Reservoir.
