Confirmed mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the memorial service for SPC Connor Hughes. SPC Hughes was critically injured when he was struck by a vehicle while out jogging. He eventually succumbed to his injuries. He is a graduate of McCallum High School in Austin and served with the Army National Guard for 2 years in Texas and New Mexico.
With 2 missions at the same time miles apart we still had 9 members show up to show respect and to honor Connor. The memorial service was held on the school practice football field with dozens of attendees including lots of military from his unit. We first formed a flag line beside the field behind the seating area but as more & more folks arrived, we repositioned to a small overlook hill further back.
Even in death, Connor was helping others. Total strangers will receive his donated organs. God’s speed soldier. You will be well received by the Supreme healer.
We also welcomed a new rider, Gary Myers & one returning rider from awhile back. Great to have you both.
