The Honor Ride featured famed Texas Ranger Captains Frank Hamer, and Maney Gault. COG detailed highlights of their lives and career, including Frank’s son, Billy Hamer, who was killed in action on Iwo Jima during World War II. He shared scripture and we all toasted to these fallen heroes.
For history buffs, Frank Hamer was documented to have been involved with 50 shootings, 17 of which he received injuries, and of those, four were life threatening. Maney Gault was his best friend who he recruited into the Texas Rangers. These two were credited for tracking down and killing Bonnie and Clyde.

The Thin Blue Line LEMC Police Memorial Ride was a meaningful ride to the Houston Police Memorial off Memorial Drive and the Harris County Fallen Peace Officers Memorial Garden off of Main Street in Houston, Texas.
Riders visited both memorials and read the names of the fallen from the Houston Police Department, Harris County Sheriff’s Office, and surrounding Constables Offices. This Event took place before National Police Week in the month of May.
The event honors our fallen and is for the understanding of our mission in the club…we honor and support first responders and their families in time of need.
