FLAG CEREMONY - Monday evening from Rusty Scholl

Here's the Sunday update for the flag ceremony tomorrow evening.

Hunter Biehle's casket is due to arrive in Austin on Southwest Flight #2022 at 5:45 pm. How smoothly everything goes at the airport will determine when the procession leaves Austin. Paul Kipp will call me as they leave. At that time we will start passing out flags, going from west to east.
Each flag has a corresponding small orange turf marker with the flag holder's number on it.
I can't tell you what time is best, as there are two many variables. I recommend arriving about 6:45 pm or earlier and finding your turf market. Bring lawn chairs if you desire.
No uniforms are required, but they can be worn. Same for military caps and ball caps. As the procession passes saluting would be nice.
After the procession passes the same truck that delivered the flags will come by and pick them up.
Hopefully we can provide a show of support for the family that they will always remember. Lee County honors military service with pride..
It would also be nice if you can pick up the turf marker and put it in the truck also.
The Giddings fire department, police department, and sheriff's department are all involved, as well as these branches of the towns that the procession will drive through.
This is going to be a long post as here are the flag locations. Some are going to be added later as I messed up when we were marking this morning. I do know that I was tired after walking and marking 3.6 miles.

Everyone please check you flag locations. I know I texted a lot of errors when I was letting people know where to go.
