Frontier Boy Honored by East Texas Patriot Guard Riders

by Sylvia Duke

Arthur Duke, Eagle Level Frontier Boy with Troop 109 in Big Sandy was honored Monday 6 March 2017 by the East Texas Patriot Guard Riders.  The ETPGR presented Arthur with a plaque “in appreciation for . . . unswerving support and dedication to our veterans and the East Texas Patriot Guard Riders”.

Arthur has been leading troop members in making Star Appreciation Packets for ETPGR since July 2016, so far making more than 4,400 packets for his Make a Difference Award through Quest.  Flags needing to be retired are donated and the stars salvaged for use in the Star Appreciation Packets.
