Notes: Bring a bottle of water for yourself and one for a friend. At the start of the funeral service we will strike the flag line and prepare to join the law enforcement escorted procession immediately following the funeral mass to the San Juan Cemetery in Reedville, TX, about a 10 minute ride. We will form a second flag line there for the burial service.
Very thankful for the great turnout today to honor SPC Phillip Cruz Medellin. Sixteen riders including two first mission members, one being the Uncle of SPC Medellin. In addition, arriving at the cemetery we were honored to be approached by a Gold Star Mom who asked to join us standing in the flag line. Another shout out for our dedicated flag wrangler Don Ferguson who always goes above and beyond the call of duty for carrying jumper cables. Departure time at the cemetery we had a bike needing a jump. SEMPER GUMBY!
