Patriot Guard Riders-Supporting the Troops!

I heard about this organization a couple of years ago called the Patriot Guard Riders that go to military funerals to honor the fallen and provide a barrier between the families of soldiers should any prostestors show up.

When I joined this group, I had NO IDEA how valuable or dear to me they would become. I joined them because I believed in what they do and I wanted to be a part of it.

Well I would like to tell you this is the greatest group of people you could ever meet! I had NEVER met anyone in the group until my son had his accident. These people took it upon themselves to come to Atlanta in afternoon traffic to see my son even though they had never met me or my son.

Yesterday, once again, they came to see him at the nursing home. They presented my son with a plaque and a lapel pin thanking him for his service to our country. They also brought some crossword puzzles and wordfinds for us to help pass the time.

These people are just wonderful. They are the kind of people you just want to be around. I wish my son and I had an opportunity to ride with them before his accident. And I still hope we can ride with them someday.

I told my son about them when I joined and said, "Maybe when you get back, we can ride on a mission with the PGR." Little did I know the PGR would support and comfort us for my son. But I am thankful for them.

I tell you all this for one reason. This group needs your support. We need more people like them. Visit the website and read some of the stories, check up on what is happening with our soldiers overseas, etc. It is time well spent.
Visit their store and purchase something to help support them. They TRULY support the troops!!!
