We had a great gathering of 13 Patriots to stand in honor for Mr. Dorwin "Buddy" French yesterday in Bastrop, including first-time rider Dan Neischin riding in from Columbus, TX. It was literally standing-room-only at his memorial service with all the family & friends attending. Before our briefing, his sister walked over to our group and thanked us each personally for being there for him. Many thanks to Nicki, Soup, and Nicki's twin sister Vicki for wrangling the flags and the nice visual of all the extra ones out on the driveway. Thank you for your service Buddy and Godspeed.
