    Riders, you may recall last fall we participated in a home presentation in Round Rock 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 have been invited to a new home groundbreaking event in Liberty Hill for another wounded warrior, US Army Spc. David DeTuccio. Read Spc DeTuccio's story here. https://www.operationfinallyhome.org/u-s-army-spc-david-detuccio/

    Notes: Fly your big flags! Upon our arrival at the Welcome Center we will have about 20 minutes to visit with Spc. DeTuccio and his family then join a procession for the very short ride to the home site where we will dismount and form a flag line for the ground breaking ceremony.

    The Ghost

    18 bikes showed up for the ground breaking ceremonies in Santa Rita Ranch for Spc. Detuccio. Only screw-up was a last minute decision by the Ride Captain to not park where intended which made us a little late for the flag line, but no big harm was done. The Patriot Guard Riders were all invited to an after action reception at the visitors center, which some of us attended. Food was good and plentiful.
