It was a central Texas summer day honoring Mr. Johnson with the occasional cloud providing some relief for the 11 patriots in today's flag line. Turns out besides being a Navy vet, Mr. Johnson rode with Centex PGR in years past.

Thanks again to Don for handling the flags and providing water. We fulfilled our mission to honor Mr. Johnson's service to our nation.
