    Fourteen PGR members showed up on yet another beautiful, crisp Saturday morning in Smithville to honor MSgt Jerry Glenn Martin USAF RET. We had 7 bikes and the rest caged it. The number of riders we had allowed us to cover 3 entrances to the church used by attendees. Most attendees acknowledged our participation with comments of thanks and a couple of "looking good". We received gracious thank you's from daughters Rebecca and Lisa and an invite to a fish fry after the service. Several of our riders departed asap after the flag line stood down so they could make the second mission of the day in Buda. Hats off the those for their dedication to our mission. RIP loyal and faithful servant MSgt Jerry Glenn Martin.
