Hello Mark; My first ride with the PGR was for SPC Pagan & I was very impressed with the turnout & respect shown for this brave soldier & his family. I'll be honored to ride for Mr. Brown, & will see you there.March 5, 2010 at 12:58 am #2507
Just FYI, my ice chest is MIA, (son-in-law barrowed it) so I will not have water with me. Please remember to bring your own.
Thanks for all you do!!March 6, 2010 at 3:47 pm #2509The GhostModerator
After action report. We had 17 bikes and 2 cages at the funeral home to post an impressive flag line. The ride to Killeen was uneventful. There we met 10 Centex PGR. The only downside to the whole day was that the shelter was not available to Mr. Brown until 1500 and we arrived at the cemetary at 1330. Thanks to all for honoring Mr. Brown.
