    With this coming weekend being Memorial Day weekend, this thread is dedicated to ALL of our military personnel (both current duty and all of those who came before them) !!!

    I would like to post some pictures from what is called "Warrior's Weekend" here in Victoria, Texas. This is the 7th year this great event has been held, and it only continues to get larger with each passing year. This year the Warrior's group brought in 700 wounded Warrior's from all over the country to participate in a flag dedication in Victoria and a fishing tournament in POC (Port O'Connor, TX). 20 buses of Warrior's made the trip from all points of the country and stopped at Faith Family Church for a dedication of the "Field of Honor" with over 2,500 American flags (3'x 5'), and an unbelievably beautiful sight, and then the group traveled on down to POC to meet with over 300 fishing guides who all donated their time and boats to taking the Warrior's out for a day on the water, trying to enjoy themselves for maybe the first time in a LONG time. The procession down to Victoria and POC from Houston Intercontinental Airport was over 5 miles long, with in excess of 120 motorcycles and law enforcement units from the Texas Gulf Coast escorting the Warrior's to their final destination. As they passed thru local towns along the way, it would bring tears to your eyes, to see the patriotism that everyone showed this worthy group of individuals !!! I hope y'all enjoy some of the pictures I took to help document this great occasion. Mike* (MH*)
