The first squad of Texas Road Runners was deployed with Sgt. Wolf to the north side of Houston in the heart of Bubba-country. Troops were inserted in local stores, gas stations, used car lots and junk yards ( being careful to avoid junk yard dogs which are notoriously aggressive). Veterans Days are prime barbecuing times for the Bubbas, but Saturdays are also prime junk yard days as the Bubbas seek out used parts for their '60s pick up trucks. Restoration of old trucks are a favored past time in Bubba- country.
Sgt. Wolf reported citizen reactions to the troops as varied, with comments usually prefaced with "wtf...". Positive remarks were, " (laugh) Right on, little dude", "hey, Billy Bob, look at this little M...F....! (laugh). Yeah, bring 'em home", "you ain't just a-sh....., buddy". and so forth. Overall, the Bubbas were positive, with just a few reacting negatively.
Second squad was deployed on the southeast side of Houston, to Krogers, Blockbuster, 2 Dollar stores, Nail Salon , 2 banks, a tire repair place, Do-nut shoppe, Radio Shack, and an imitation Stop-n-Go. Third squad will be deployed after 1300 hours when troop transport becomes available. Unfortunately, the military photographer is not available for photos , but the troops are conducting their missions admirably with bravery and fortitude.
