It was cool, sunny day for a ride out to Cameron to honor the service of Mr. Samuel “Sammie” Dibble. We had 17 in the flag line, a great turnout due in no small part to the Centex riders who rode down. We had folks from Houston and Lampasas, and a first time rider as well.
Four riders stood with flags at the two entrances off the busy main road, eliciting many honks in appreciation from the vehicles passing by. Don staked other flags where they made a big impact.
Centex brought their support trailer, so we made good use of that at the cemetery. It was a brief graveside ceremony, but the family and friends present said we “made a big difference”.
I hope all made it home safety.
RIP, Mr. Dibble. Thank you for your service.
