What a great day to be an American. 12 PGR members, 3 Lakeway PD units, & total strangers arrived to escort CpL Babin & family to his future smart home. It was a moving ceremony with representatives from several participating organizations present.
A special thanks to Chief Todd Radcliff & Sgt Brown for arranging the police escort that got us there w/o a hitch. U all are super.December 1, 2016 at 3:32 am #4873
