Great mission today. 25 bikes. 28 people in the flag line. 4 volunteers left staging early to go make sure the flag line was in place for the arrival of SGT Guzman. Thank you. Nicki and the volunteers who left the staging early did a good job of getting flags to other attendees so that there was a flag line nearly the whole length of the driveway when the Guzman family arrived. Upon arrival, our riders relieved the non PGR members of their flags and our flag line re-grouped around the perimeter of the shelter. There was no socializing due to COVID restrictions, so after Sgt. Guzman raised the flag in front of his new house, we stood down the flag line and riders departed. Special thanks to the Hays County Sheriff's Dept.. for being there to escort us on this mission. Great job. A special thanks to Deputy Bruce Harlan who met with us last Tues. and briefed us on the conduct of the procession. Thanks to Chappy for not letting me forget it and for leading us in prayer to start the mission. Thanks also to Shaquanta Bailey "Q" who granted every request we made in order to get our part done as smoothly as possible. Last but not least a big thanks to all the riders who showed up ready honor this hero today…………with masks and everything! It was a great day.
