Once again, you men & women of the PGR have shown your best for one of our fallen heros & his family. In one of the hottest days of the year, U stood firm in the flag line. It never ceases to amaze me how much U are willing to go through to render such amazing respect & honors. U make an incredible difference in the lives of those we serve. Thank U is just not enough for what U do, but THANK U, THANK U, THANK U!
We had 59 bikes & 6 cages. Members came from as far away as Houston & Beeville with units from Austin, Centex & Brazos Valley. We even had a GOLD STAR MOM stand tall with us inspite of how difficult it was for her. We are all very proud of you & all GS parents that stand our ranks.
Again, Thank you all so very much especially from those of us who are VN vets.August 28, 2011 at 1:43 am #3380
