Please attend to honor this soldier's brave service to our nation.
We finally got a nice break from the Texas heat today during our mission honoring Jimmy N. Proctor, US Army Viet Nam veteran. A total of eight Patriots stood tall in the flag-line for his funeral service in Georgetown and four of us escorted the coach to his final resting place at CTSVC in Killeen where we joined CENTEX PGR to stand another flag-line for that service. Jimmy Nick's family was so appreciative of our presence at both services and quite a number came up to us to tell us so and there were hugs and hand-shakes all around. Thank you all who took time out of your day to honor Jimmy Nick, it's humbling to witness the outpouring of gratitude from what we all do. Don, the special touch you give to each mission by placing out all the extra flags is outstanding, thank you sir! Rest in peace Jimmy Nick and thank you for your service to our nation.
