19 Bikes + 1 Flag Van, 1 new Rider, and a San Antonio rider and his significant other participated in the final honors for MSgt. A. Martinez. The mission was somewhat out of the ordinary but the PGR participants performed flawlessly. The Martinez family was very appreciative of the respect and honor we showed their loved one. Great job by all, thank you for your participation.
