The Patriot Guard Riders

They welcomed our group in Dallas.

They sent us off on our mission.

They greeted the plane in Kansas City.

We were escorted to the hotel, and back again to the airport today.

They stood the flag line for hours this morning in honor of this mission.

Working men and women. Vets of Vietnam, Desert Storm, OIF, and Korea. Some Blue Star and Gold Star families. All patriots. All having shared the sacrifice.

They were the first folks to call us after the D.O.D. informed us that Pete was dead. They are in all 50 states and exist to support the families of fallen soldiers.

The proudest moments of my life have been spent with these men and women. I have had the honor of joining them as a PGR in Texas and now in California. Selfless. Standing for those that have stood for us.

God bless the PGR.

You don't have to ride a Harley to join. All it takes is the willingness to stand for our country. You will meet the best of people and make new friends. That is a guarantee.
