It will be an honor to stand for BJ. He and my Dad were good friends. Over the years they hoisted many a cold Budweiser at Tuff's Tavern in Pflugerville. Here's to them and those like them..Damn few left!December 19, 2010 at 11:37 pm #2992
I think I can get transportation to this one. It would be nice to see at least 20 of us there to honor this 2 time veteran. Being a short one maybe some could use their lunch hour?December 21, 2010 at 10:53 pm #2995
Very good mission for Mr. Reynolds today. 18 bikes, 3 cages plus 2 fine young men. Well done TC. 3 First timers included. Glad to have you with us guys.December 22, 2010 at 1:13 am #2996texas coyoteModerator
The mission for LCDR B. J. Reynolds is now complete. I want thank each and everyone that attended the mission and I hope that all made it back home safely. The last count I had was 17 bikes, 1 trike, 3 cages and 24 souls to stand the Flag Line. As stated above by JBALL, the 24 included 2 fine young men with their own little Flags, and 3 First timers, one of which was also Active Duty. Thank You to everyone who helped make this mission a success, either by your attendance or otherwise.
