    10 members of the Austin PGR stood for Mr. Robert Bledsoe. After the flag line departed, myself and a friend of Mr. Bledsoe who is a member of the PGR from Northeast Texas accompanied the family to the gravesite and deported quietly. Thanks to those that stood the flag line and the family for letting us honor PFC Bledsoe.
