We had a really good showing today of 12 Patriots to stand in honor for MSgt Fennis Eugene Carter Jr. on a beautiful, sunny Texas Saturday morning. Two of our riders, Sammy & Sassy, rode all the way in from Houston to attend...thank you both! This was a very large service in attendance and our flag-line made a huge visual impression. Along with Don's artistic taste in placing a number of static flags, we had numerous compliments and thank-you's from arriving family and friends. Thank you for your service MSgt. Carter, RIP & Godspeed sir!

Jimmy Callison, R/C
