Part 1 Details 

The family of Johnny "Tex" Carter has honored the North Texas Patriot Guard Riders with an invitation to complete their mission to Honor Mr. Carter's Service to our Country, which began on November 10, 2018 at his Memorial Service.

Mr. Carter and his family are close friends of former PGR Texas State Treasurer and active State Board Member and Support Member and Rider, John "Obi-Wan" Watts. Mr. Carter has completed his Service to Country and Community by donating his body to UT Southwestern Medical School and is now ready to join his wife, Joye Ellason Carter, in a dual Inurnment Service at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. Mrs. Carter predeceased Johnny on July 6, 2007. Our certificate was presented to the family at Mr. Carter's Memorial Service in November of last year.

After the mission briefing, honor bikes will move to the staging lanes to await the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Carter and their family and friends. All other Riders will move to the shelter to set the flags and await the arrival of the procession. We'll then stand tall and silent in honor of Mr. Carter's Service to our Country. At the conclusion of the Service, flags will be returned to storage, and the Riders will be debriefed and dismissed.
