Thanks to the Austin and Centex members who attended today. 24 bikes, several cages, 35 people with a good attitude in the heat, on short notice. You were outstanding, and the family certainly appreciated it. Terry, the boys loved getting on the bike and reving it up!
3 new first mission members today also. Thanks for joining us and standing tall.

Thanks for having me. I was overwhelmed by the love and respect that the Patriot Guard gave this family they didn't even know before Sunday. It was a privilege and honor to be there serving with you guys and gals. God Bless you all!
