    Please attend to honor the service of this Vietnam veteran to our nation.


    We were blessed with a marvelous sun-shiny spring day down in the southern AOR for AUS/PGR, where we had a solid six PGR members standing to honor Mr. Homer Negrete in Uhland today. The memorial service was well attended by Homer’s family and friends and many of them took the time to thank us each personally with hugs and handshakes. Part two of this mission was escorting the hearse and procession from the church in Uhland down to Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio for the interment service. Four of us riders were on this portion of the mission, down the nail-biter that is I-35. I’m totally grateful for the professionalism we enjoyed from the four Hays County Precinct Two Constables who safely guided this whole group down to Ft. Sam without incident. At Ft. Sam, we stood down for an hour until Mr. Negrete’s service was scheduled to start and then we were joined by about a dozen SA/PGR members where we all stood a flag-line for that service. Thank you for your dedicated service Mr. Negrete and RIP good sir!
