American Legion Rider
Not sure how well this will post, but here is the PGR mission I was very proud to be part of yesterday as we escorted the remains of a Navy Fireman 1st Class Bethel Walters back to Bowie Texas. The escort was accompanied by law enforcement who blocked both north bound lanes of interstate 287 the 35 miles from Decatur Texas after being escorted from Dallas International. This was very emotional for all involved but the turnout of people standing along the route waving our flag was overwhelming and made me proud to be an American and Texan. Part 1 of this mission is now complete and Part 2 will be this Saturday. We also have video but it will take a bit more time to get it edited into something not totally boring. Anyway, hope these news articles explain it better than I ever could.
