This Mission is now complete. I want to thank the seven souls that came to Burnet from the Austin Area to help make this Mission successful. A big thank you to Flag Wrangler "JC" and to Sam for getting all the information together and sending out notices. The day started out cold and wet then "improved" to "just plain Cold" by Noon. Appreciation for the PGR and our presence at the Memorial\Birthday party for Sidney was conveyed to us by his Widow plus many Family members and Friends. They were truly as Honored that we were there as we were Honored by being invited to be there. His 82nd Birthday was today and the Party had already been planed. So at his request the Party went on as scheduled, Complete with a the cake saying "Happy Birthday". Rest in Peace Senior Master Sergeant Sidney E. Allen.
