Please make plans to stand tall for this hero who stood for us in Vietnam and again here at home.March 10, 2011 at 6:31 am #3129
Newbie asking for a ride, if anyone is coming from the Bastrop area. I can help with fuel and/or supplies, or try to return the favor, at a later time. I have gear, if riding double.
Bike is elsewhere, in pieces… Only 1 car, and the girls already planned to go shopping (some Bastrop thing, downtown).
512-308-9891 Should be home most of the time, between now and then, since I'm the stay-at-home parent.
Thanks!March 12, 2011 at 12:01 am #3133
I'll be there. Sorry i cant help you two. I stay North Side…March 12, 2011 at 12:42 am #3134
I have Jack and I covered after all. I can have the car tomorrow, and the girls can shop on Sunday…
I have spoken with Jack, have his address and all.March 13, 2011 at 1:08 am #3135
A big thanks for the great turn out today for Warren Young. With 40 bikes and 2 cages, we stood tall. We also had 3 first mission riders and one active duty. Riders coming from other areas included Centex and San Antonio.
Everyone handled a couple of "Semper Gumby" items with patience and grace, and it was certainly appreciated.
Thanks go out to Mark, Andy, and Terry for getting up early to accompany Mr. Young from the funeral home to the church, as well as Dick and Steve for their assistance with parking and traffic,
and our flag wranglers. Thanks guys.
It was an honor to stand with you all today!March 13, 2011 at 9:55 pm #3137
My sincere thanks to Jeff for allowing me to ride with him to this mission. It was greatly appreciated.March 14, 2011 at 12:59 pm #3139
We have a good group of folks; that helps to make little hic-ups appear seamless to the family.
It was an honor to stand with you all for this hero.
