    From The PO3 Marvin Lenard Mission

    A hand-written note was given to us. It is too hard to read when adapted to display on our WEB site, so this is a transcription:

    I wish I had the right words to give y'all a proper "Thank You." I'm so very honored and touched that God blessed us with you and your group who do such important work. I know that my husband is smiling as y'all do this mission for him.

    Please accept this small donation as our thanks.

    God Bless You and the PGR

    I'm Scotts uncle and I want too thank ALL of the PGR riders for attending the funeral. I being a ride captain in Indiana with the PGR, know how important it is to be present for our brother's and sister's who have passed.

    This is the first time for me to be on the receiving end of our mission's. Our family thanks you.

    Yours Respectfully,

    Pat 'Hank' Fraizer

    From The Clarence Petersen Interment Mission
    Posted: 08/25/2014
    On behalf of the Petersen family, we want to send our grateful thanks for the Patriot Guard Riders' presence at our dad's service at the DFW National Cemetery on July 31, 2014. It was so touching to see all of you there, especially familiar faces from our good friends Linda Tinnerman and Connie Carman. My dad was so proud to have been a WW II Marine and had attended many military funerals. Someone said after the ceremony, that he would have been so touched if he could have seen the send off he received. He was a true Patriot for God and his Country and now he's helping guard heaven's doors with his fellow Marines. Thank you all so much for taking the time to honor our hero.

    From The Escort On Aug 13th From The Gaylord To Hawkins, Texas
    Posted: 08/18/2014
    I just wanted to reach out and again say how moved and touched the families of the fallen were from the escort on Aug 13th from the Gaylord to Hawkins Texas.

    The honor and respect that your escort and actions make is overwhelming. Hopefully I got everyone and was able to shake their hand, thank them and give them Marc's hero card. Please share this with all of them and tell them these families will never forget the love shared by each member who rode and honored them and their fallen hero!

    If I can ever do anything for your group do not hesitate to reach out.

    God bless,
    -- Debbie Lee

    Posted: 08/18/2014
    To all

    The North Texas Patriot Guard Riders have been asked to participate in a number of upcoming events that will require bikes with Big Flags (Honor Bikes) mounted . So if you have been thinking about mounting a big flag to your bike but have held back, now is the time to make that decision and investment in mounting flags. If you currently have or will soon have big flags mounted on your bike please send me your name, phone number and email address so I can add you to my database.

    Thank you for all you do.
