Dear Patriot Guard Riders,

I want to say thank you for coming out today to welcome the soldiers from Ft Drum. One of the soldiers stopped me on the way out to let me know that they were, as he put it "floored by everything" today. Robin Barnes the Chaplain of the Blue Star Mothers of Dayton told me that they were elated when they found out that you all were going to be there.

As you know ours is a "mission of appreciation" and I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to show that appreciation and shake the hands of our real heroes. I also consider it an honor to be involved with the Patriot Guard.

Today when those young men of the 2nd Battalion,87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team walked through that row of flags, I teared up. I realized that before me stood the backbone of our country. Men and woman like you who have served and continue to serve, and or course the new generation of those who are fighting for freedom. It was a sight that I wished many more could see. I simply can not put into words everything that I felt.  

It gives me hope to know that there are still people out there like you who respect our flag and honor those who have fought and died for our freedom.

Thank you again so very much for what you do and God Bless.

John Guinn

President and Founder
