    Riders, recall back in February we participated in a ground breaking ceremony at the invitation of Operation Finally Home, a charitable organization which provides custom-built, mortgage-free homes to America’s military heroes and the widows of the fallen.

    We are now invited to the presentation of this completed home to US Army Spc. David DeTuccio and his family. Read Spc DeTuccio's story here: https://www.operationfinallyhome.org/u-s-army-spc-david-detuccio/

    The Ghost

    12 bikes and flag truck attended Home Dedication. Mission went pretty flawlessly and all riders were invited back to the sales center for a reception; most of us took advantage. Georgetown Fire Department showed up with their ladder truck but forgot an American flag. They now have one courtesy of the PGR Received a large round of applause when we were introduced to the attendees.All in all a fun mission.
