Rosa's Cafe on 79 is a great place to have breakfast. Around 5 bucks plus Military discount or Senior discount. I get a sausage & egg bowl & coffee for under 5 bucks. & it's plenty of food. Palm Valley is just down the street a couple of blocks.December 14, 2018 at 1:17 am #5250

We had nine in the flag line today to honor Mr. Kirchner on this cool, sunny (but not windy) morning. It was a large turnout with many friends and family members stopping to thank us. Mrs. Kirchner walked the line with her daughter and two sweet young grandchildren.
We also meet the wife of an active duty Navy pilot who said her husband rides and would like to join us when he's not flying large military aircraft. That would be outstanding.
Thank you Don for bringing the flags. Safe travels to those heading to the second mission of the day in Llano.
RIP Mr Jerry Wayne Kirchner. It was a privilege to honor your service to our country in this way.
