This Mission is now complete. Along with some beautiful Central Texas weather we had 15 Members attending the service today for LtCol. Robert Kollman Jr. There was 1 Trike, 9 Bikes and 2 Cages. One of the riders was Scott Yarbrough and this was his first PGR Mission. Welcome to the Patriot Guard Scott. We also had several riders up from San Antonio.

Members of the United States Air Force performed full Military Honors at the Cemetery and some of our PGR members served as Pall Bearers at the Funeral Home. The Family was very appreciative of our attendance just as we were Honored to be there for them.

I want to give a special Thank You to Nikki and "Soup" Campbell for being the Flag Wranglers today and to Warren Longacre for helping me throughout the Mission today.

I hope everyone had a safe and uneventful ride home today Thank you all again and God Bless.

We are each just a pixel in the "Big Picture." Together we bring it into focus. Hopefully the image we create will leave a positive and lasting impression on each Family and Community that we have the Honor of serving..
