    Please attend this mission to honor Mr. Johnson's service to our country.


    Fifteen responded to the Mission for Raymond Johnson. Many members of the family including Mrs. Johnson came out of the funeral home in the chilly damp air to personally thank the PGR for honoring their loved one. There was not a formal procession to CTSVC. The Funeral Home had a lead car and the coach so three big flag bikes escorted Mr. Johnson to the cemetery. The family didn't expect it and when the offer to escort was extended they were very appreciative. Three others of our fifteen rode up and staged with Central Texas making a total of six that attended both flag lines.
