Dear Patriot Guard Riders,  I would like to Thank the Patriot Guard Riders on behalf of myself and  my family for the most awesome display of respect, honor & patriotism.  

My father passed away on May 6, 2009 and my brother being a United States Air Force Veteran and a bike rider, knew the two things my father was so proud of in his life (other than being married to his high school sweetheart for 51 yrs. & having 5 children) he was a proud  United States Navy - Cold War Veteran AND a Harley Rider. So my brother contacted The Ohio Patriot Guard Riders to attend my fathers funeral.     

On Sunday I pulled up in front of Newcomer Funeral Home and there they were, setting up all the flags along the road......instant tears. You all went above & beyond.... not only did you greet each & every person that came to pay their respects to my dad, you opened doors, you smiled and gave words of comfort, you shared stories and to the people that questioned your organization you explained your "mission".      

At the cemetery you stood displaying the flags with such respect & pride. Words cannot express how grateful I am that your organization was a part of my fathers funeral.    Thank you soooooo much.                               

Janelle Wright   & The Wright family
P.S. A BIG thanks to my brother Bill for bringing the Patriot Guard Riders into our lives!

Dear Ralph and members of the Patriot Guard.

There are times when "Thank You" just doesn't cover what needs said. This is one of those times. Having you at our Gold Star event was awesome. So many of the parents told us how important it was for them to see you there. It was our honor to have you there. Thank you for the love you have for the families of our fallen heroes. God bless each one of you.

Dear Patriot Guard Riders, District 5, Captain Lee Smith;

I want to thank you for honoring my father, SSGT Otto B. Sanders Jr. USAF on Saturday 23rd on May. Your assembled group who stood holding flagpoles with mounted American flags @ the entry of the funeral home was the ultimate welcome to all visitors that day.

My Dad flew 30 missions as a ball turret gunner of a B-24 in the European Theatre of WWII, & it was heartfelt to know that in 65 years he was not forgotten by fellow veterans for his proud service. What you provide to the families of American War Heroes like my Father is unbelievable & impossible to thank enough. Not unlike the Veterans who you Patriot Guard Riders ride miles to honor; Brave soldiers who have also not been thanked enough.

Your gift of insuring my Dad was honored & respected, will never be forgotten. Thank you for the emotional final salute at my Fathers urn, & honoring me by presenting me with your gift of his plaque identifying him as an American Hero. It is my most prized possession.

Ever grateful~
Bradford Otto Sanders & family
