"At one table, the soldiers started talking about how "awesome" everything about the evening was. One soldier said, "I tell you what. I've done a lot of things--seen a lot of things, but that was just something different." He said, "Seeing those riders--the Patriot Guard with the flag flying. That was just something different. I've gotta call my brother and tell him about this." Another soldier chimed in with "Man, I was gettin' tears in my eyes. I couldn't believe they were ridin' in that rain." The other soldiers at the table sat there eating their pizza and nodding their heads and grinning.

I got up and moved to another table and before long there was a variation on the first scenario. "Ma'am, this is unreal! I can't explain how I felt when I saw those bikers." "Y'all have an awesome church that would do something like this! I'm gonna come back here when I'm done with basic."

I want to say my own personal thanks to the Patriot Guard for all they have done and will do to support our troops and families. I also want the Second Wind Riders to know that I love them and appreciate them for making our family so welcome so immediately upon our arrival. We have had a BLAST! Fort Benning/Columbus/Cornerstone will be the place of some of our fondest memories. Our first biking memories! :)

Speaking of that, guess what!?!! I completed the FTB motorcycle safety course today, will get my permit tomorrow and MAY get my Honda Shadow this weekend!!!!! Yippeee!"

Hello, I am the aunt of Fallen Marine Lance Corporal William Spencer. Yesterday, January 7, 2007, was Billy's funeral at Milford High School in Cincinnati. I had the privilege and honor of being one of the family members who were able to ride with you from the school to the cemetery. It was a such an uplifting experience for members of our family and friends of Billy's to be able to ride. For those few minutes, we were relieved of some of the sadness and stress that has been upon us. We know Billy was looking down upon us saying "Way to go". I would like to Personally thank each and every person that was there to show their support. I also would like to thank the person in our area who organized everything. I am sorry but I can not remember anyone's name. Even though he said it was last minute, they accommodated our every need. I also would like to thank the gentleman who I rode with. His name slips my mind right now, but he was very kind in my time of sorrow. Please pass this on to him. Please see that our gratitude is known through out your organization.

Thank you. Debra Sorrell
