What a great turn out. We had 18 bikes in front of The Traveling Wall van 15 behind it & 11 - 3 wheelers bringing up the rear. Flag bikes were placed at the front of each section with Warren L serving as tail gunner with his flagged trike.
LEOs from Cedar Park PD, Williamson Co. SO & Bell Co. SO helped make the procession a safe one. What a great bunch of patriots these LEOs are.

The day started with a large bunch of riders sharing breakfast (& stories) @ the 1431 Cafe in CP. Then at staging, we were briefed by folks from the Traveling Wall That Heals, Sgt Gomez of WCSO & myself. Upon arriving at CTSVC, we were met with about a dozen or so more riders & others in cages. We had a debrief & given info about the 3/4 size traveling wall, a group photo session & handed pins for our participation. Most riders hung around looking at displays on the side of the van & generally swapping stories of their time in VN or of someone they knew. All were invited to come back up to view the Wall sometime over the nx week. For those of us who were in VN or lost someone there, this can & is an emotional tribute & well worth your & your families time to visit.
Thank U all so much for being the stand up Americans that U are. Semper Fi, Cpl. Keith Longacre USMC 63-67

In memory of Tommy L. Loan, US Army KIA VN
