    The Ghost

    14 PGR bikes and Bob's flag van. Mission joined by 11 VFW riders out of Buda, San Marcos. Two new riders, one an active duty soldier from San Antonio. Also had a pre-teen proudly hold a flag-did a great job. No LEO showed up so two former policemen from the VFW took over and handled traffic for us. All in all a good mission although hot as blazes.
