    COMPLETED MISSION: Ten patriots stood the flag line at the cemetery in Mason to honor Navy Veteran Jerry Reichenau. It was a very windy but sunny day. Nicki staked 8 flags prior to the arrival of the procession. The funeral procession arrived accompanied by three riders from San Antonio PGR who joined us in the flag line. The widow expressed deep appreciation for our presence at the ceremony. Thank you to all who braved the really strong winds to attend this mission. A special thanks to Steve for catching a discrepancy between the start time listed in the OBIT and the start time listed in the tasking message. It literally saved the day. RIP Seaman Reichenau.
    Soup Campbell, Ride Captain
