June 23,2009 was the funeral of my father, SSGT Ernest Isaac, WW II & Korea veteran, age 81.  

I would like to personally thank and commend he Patriot Guard Riders under the leadership of Ride Captain Frank 'SARGE' Harris for a job well done!!. As a Patriot Guard Member I know and understand what we do, but this past week the shoe has been on the other foot, so to speak, and my father's family and friends experienced a Patriot Guard Mission from the bereaved side. They were grateful, impressed, and more understanding of the missions. I received many thank you's and words of gratitude for the PGR Mission on behalf of my father.

Again Sarge, I am eternally grateful.

Ernie 'Sandsifter' Isaac
Viet-Nam Era US Navy Vet and PGR member

Dear Ohio Patriot Guard Riders,  

No words can express the gratitude that my family and I feel for your patriotism and participation at my grandfather’s viewing, funeral, and graveside services on Wednesday June 24, 2009 in Vandalia, Ohio.  We were completely overwhelmed and in awe by the number of Patriot Guard men and women who were there to honor my grandpa, Carroll Snider – a man and WWII veteran whom you have never met.  It must have been the hottest and most humid day of the year so far, but 19 of you were there for him.  The professionalism, patriotism, and respect you showed and garnered made us extremely proud, even on our very sad day.  During the long 15 mile procession between the service location and cemetery, it did not go unnoticed how every on-coming car stopped and how people came out of their homes and businesses to pay their respects.  To Captain John McGee, your heartfelt condolences on behalf of the PGR's will always be cherished.  It was certainly one of the hardest days for my family, but you helped to make our last memories we will have with Carroll (grandpa) as special as he was.  

Sincerely,
Jenny Pierce (for the Snider, Finch, Nelson, and Pierce family)
