In these times it’s unusual to read all the good that has been done for our troops. It seems that we as citizens forget that these young men and women are our children. They are the ones who have stepped up to support our country; they are the ones who have signed a blank check to defend this great nation.
I have brought home dozens upon dozens of our service men and women, as well as participated in honoring our fallen. This local paper and its staff make it a point to come and write their stories and welcome them home. As an American Legion Rider and a Patriot Guard Rider, I say you are to be thanked. I just wish that more of our local organizations and groups would try to step up to the plate as the Press has. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting our troops and the Patriot Guard Riders.
We (PGR/ALR,10,13) will continue to support, escort and stand for all our troops, as you have done. And a special Bravo Zulu to you, Rick. It’s an honor to know you.
