    Thank you to the 14 patriots who honored MSG Munoz by their presence on a hot Texas summer afternoon. Luckily we had shade next to the building for the duration.

    Once the flag line was established the funeral director brought the entire family out front to pose for photos and walk the line thanking us for our attendance.

    We had a first time rider today as well. Welcome to George from Killeen! Jimmy C presented him his first mission pin.

    Thank you again Don for bringing the water and flags and staking a number of them in advance of the formation of the flag line.

    MSG Munoz's daughters told us how much he loved the military. Rest in Peace, sir, it was a privilege to stand for you.
