Anyone going to this mission for Mr Duorte, I could use a ride as I have no transportation. This mission is only about 4 miles from my house. Will provide assistance on gas. I am in the Manchaca/Ben White area. Thanks.
What a beautiful morning with no clouds, temp 70 deg at 7:30am and no wind while riding to stand tall for another one of our heroes!
Thanks to all who made it to this mission for the Major. His wife was brought to tears when thanking us for being there.
We had 8 bikes, and really appreciate Flag Wrangler Bob for hauling the flags for two days in a row!
Hope everyone made it home safely before the high winds began.
Our first mission rider today, said he would be returning to stand tall with us. Thanks for being there.
