This past Sunday was the West Texas Salute to the Troops. 6th mtbn, the local reserve unit, held their family day in conjunction with this event. The Patriot Guard came out and held a ride and there was a silent auction, a raffle for a Ka-Bar knife with a plaque (I bought tickets, but didn't win it), face painting and a cupcake eating contest.
The pictures show the Patriot Guard beginning their ride, the awards ceremony (the PGR got certificates of appreciation and 6th mtbn challenge coins), and the cookout and cupcake eating contest. Looks like the Marines were having a little too much fun with the cupcakes, huh?
