Ranger Cross Dedication Ceremony
On April 24th, I was honored to participate in a memorial dedication for former Texas Ranger Andrew Jackson (Jack) Harwell (1858-1913). The ceremony was held in conjunction with the Former Texas Ranger Association (FTRA) at the Robinson Cemetery in Robinson, Texas. The Former Texas Ranger Association erected a permanent cross at the gravesite of Ranger Harwell. I was asked to welcome the friends and family on behalf of the FTRA as well as recite the Ranger Prayer by former Texas Ranger Pierre Bernard Hill. To date, the FTRA has erected more than 750 memorial crosses for former Rangers.
