Please attend to show honor and gratitude for this Texas patriot's service to our state and nation.
We had 9 people standing tall in the flag line at Camp Mabry Chapel this morning, where a large crowd gathered to attend the service for Fredrick Dwayne Crawford. The Buffalo Soldiers were also in attendance.
Six riders accompanied the funeral procession to Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.
Thanks to you all who endured 107 Deg temperatures riding with the procession and helping to get all the Centex PGR's flags put away before we left. Thanks to Nicki and her husband for bringing the flags for the chapel.
