    Soup Campbell mission summary:

    It was a beautiful sunny day for the service honoring Major Frank Cecil Stolz Jr.. As a result, we had 13 patriots attending to honor this genuine Marine hero. The Majors daughter, Kathy Burgess made the trek out to our staging area and brought many family members including her 4 sons to let us know how much it meant to the family for us to be there. We received exceptional support from the Hill Country Bible Church. Our point of contact, Shelly, who’s info was provided by Kathy, was exceptionally helpful. As a result we were able to stake flags at key locations throughout the large campus which also housed a 900+student K-12 campus.

    The flag line was uneventful and well organized by Patti who received her Ride Captain designation from our Deputy State Captain, Mark Wells.

    A beautiful day, beautiful setting and a dedicated group of PGR members helped make this a meaning service for the family.

    RIP Major Frank Cecil Stolz Jr.
