    Relocated post by Military Moms of Texas:

    Thank you on behalf of Military Moms Of Texas for assisting us with our members welcome home this Friday. We have confirmation that KVUE news, Austin American Statesman, Round Rock leader , and the county commissioner will be attending. We also have the Great Oaks elementary school coming out that support the troops we adopt. We will have SSGT Petty stopping on the way in at the Brushy Creek Community Center for a gift and interview with us. Thanks and we hope to see everyone there.


    Thanks to everyone who came out to Brushy Creek for the welcome home for SSGT Petty. The family appreciated our support.

    Good job with the flags, Bob!

    the PGR got positive press on both TV stations that covered the event.
