    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

    From The Scott Burkett Missions
    Posted: 08/27/2014
    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
    Ride Captain PGR
    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.

    Sylvia Miller:
    I am fine. Thank goodness it wasn't during a procession. I'm bruised, have road rash and mad that my bike got messed up. By the way.....that pavement was hard and hot. I got up pretty quick. Lol.  I was wearing a helmet. I'm pretty sure, from what the police and witnesses said, the helmet did it's job and protected me from serious injury! I wish I could say the same for the helmet and bike. The engine guard saved the paint but the frame got twisted and the pipes and right side bag have seen better days. The ladies insurance should cover everything, bike, helmet, boots and jeans.

    Thanks for your concern,
    Sylvia
    Gary Trotter:
    Doing great at home and getting back to my normal self thanks to all of your prayers and well wishes. Had a special visit from Rusty and Larry a couple days ago and they kept my spirits high. Watching you honor our fallen from the computer....keep standing tall and silent, I'll be there soon. Doc Trot

    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
