Jack, I hope you are able to find a ride, I would be more than glad to have you along (in a cage) if I was going. Work is going to take priority both days.
Good luck, and thank you so much for joining the PGR.

SA mission for CPL Jorge Villerreal, JR. was completed. Mark, Jack and Dennis attended from Austin. For my first mission it was awesome turnout. Almost 60 Bikes, 3 Cages and between 400 – 500 individual cars and trucks to the cemetery.
It was a big show of Respect for this man who gave his all. First time I have seen that many Marines in full dress in one place other than TV.
God Bless the Villerreal Family and especially his young wife and son.
It was a pleasure to work with the SAPGR.
