Rider Down - Mike Taylor

Our good friend Mike Taylor passed away yesterday near Austin, Texas.

Mike, an Army veteran, was very active with the PGR.  He was a regular at missions at DFW National Cemetery and his ever present smile and CMA_patched vest were a welcome sight many days of the week.  He loved riding his Harley with all of us.  He will rest with his wife at DFW National Cemetery.

Our nation lost another Hero when we lost Mike.  His funeral and interment will be put out in a mission notice as details become available.  His son Bobby has invited the PGR to be with him and his family.
