    Please attend to honor this USMC and Vietnam veteran’s service to our country.


    We had 9 PGR members standing in honor for Mr. Frank Ross, USMC Vietnam vet, down in San Marcos today. Mr. Ross’ family was very appreciative of our gathered group, his wife Neta, one of his sons, and a daughter came out to personally meet with us and talk to us all before the service started to thank each one of us and shake our hands.

    I thank all of you who took time out of your day to stand tall for Mr. Ross, we certainly made a good impression during this families time of grief. It was also a pleasure to welcome into our group Greg, a first-time AUS/PGR rider from Canyon Lake. Greg told us he has ridden a lot of missions with the Dallas area PGR and has recently moved to Canyon Lake.

    Thank you for your dedicated service Mr. Ross…Semper Fi and Godspeed good sir!
