Excellent turnout at today's mission with 20 patriots standing the flag line for Mr. Acuna. The staging location was a bit tight at Cook Walden, but we worked it out. Three off-duty APD motor officers escorted the procession to Pflugerville without incident.

The chilly morning gave way to a very pleasant mid-day. We had one new rider, Robert Graves. Welcome, Robert!

Many family and friends of Mr. Acuna walked the flag line thanking us at the conclusion of the interment service. Thank you to those in attendance for giving up part of your Saturday. Special thanks to Don for wrangling flags again.

RIP Mr. Refugio Acuna. Fair Winds and Following Seas.
