C'mon guys. We're only asking for a commitment of about 3 hrs of your time to Honor a fallen hero. Your time will make such an important impact on the Family and Friends of this young man.

It's a Coming Home Mission and we will only escort him from the Airport to the Funeral Home 10 miles away, then we can all go home or go out and eat lunch, and we still have the remainder of the day to go riding and have some fun!!

This kid was 23 yrs old, and went to Bellaire HS. So some of you probably knew him and/or went to school with him.

Whaddya say?

Here's some vids on what we're about, in case you do not know already:

I am glad you all are interested in this. Today's arrival was especially tough to witness, but was well worth it.

All I know now is that it will be this Tuesday at Houston National Cemetary. As soon as I have the info, I will post it.

You become a member of the PGR when you attend your first mission. You will fill out a form and waiver, then you will automatically become a member. No ride, no matter how fun it may be, will make you feel more better about what you have done, than to become a member and honor the fallen.

I haven't done a mission at IAH.. We've had arrivals at Sugarland and Hobby. The plane's a charter... the same one in the first vid I posted above. So it may be unlikely that the military will schedule to arrive at such a large airport like IAH, when we have Hobby, but that's just my guess.

I appreciate all your interests

We had about a dozen Army attend today in uniform. They rode their bikes, half of which were sportbikes. At first, when I saw the bikes, I thought they were MHers.

I do want to say thanks to Scott (Blue Buell), and Justine (Falkryte) for joining us today.
