Dear Mr. Woods and the Patriot Guard -

A Thank You seems so inadequate for all the efforts and heart given by you and your wonderful group of riders.

Our Homecoming for our soldiers was made so much more special with the escort you provided on October 18th to Chagrin Falls, Ohio.  Their time away from their loved ones since November on their tour in Iraq, suddenly seemed to vanish when those wonderful bikes with those wonderful riders came up that hill at Kenston High School.

The 135th MP Company and their families are so grateful and awed by your gift of support for all of them.

It was a wonderful sight to see you all climbing that hill leading our guys and gals home to their families.  Your show of support for our vets is wonderful.

Rarely, it seems, do you see dedication and caring in this day and age, but the Patriot Guard is an example to be admired. 

Thank you so much for everything.  It made a great day even greater!



                                                                   Sincerely,


                                                                   Judy Martling
                                                                   Family Readiness Group Leader

Dear Members of Patriot Guard,

 There are not enough thanks to tell you.  We sincerely, from our hearts, want you to know how wonderful it was to have you at our brother's (Marty Blackman)funeral on Oct. 24th,2009. How absolutely heartwarming and inspiring it was for all of us to have you with us at the funeral and to guide us to the cemetery where we laid him to rest. There were tears in our eyes just seeing all of you and your total, sincere respect for Marty.  We have been receiving calls and comments from all our family, friends and acquaintances about how your presence was just so beautiful. The absolute beauty of your dedication is beyond expression. Most of our family and friends had not experienced attending a funeral with such a tribute prior to Marty's funeral. I, personally, as well as my brothers and sister, have had phone calls from my friends and family telling me that it was the most heartwarming, patriotic tribute they had ever seen. We cannot thank you enough and love all of you. We already miss our brother so much and we know that he was so proud of being a member of the Patriot Guard and a veteran who served his country. He spoke of it many times and we remember him saying "I am going to ride this week to support a family who has lost a true patriot. Believe me, now I know why he wanted to be there.  Again, thank you to each of you who has written on the Patriot Guard web site and to those of you who were there in spirit and of course to all of you who attended. We wish we could have been able to meet each one of you.  What a wonderful way to give a final goodbye to your fellow brother Patriot Guard, our little brother, Marty. God Bless you and God Bless all who serve and honor this wonderful United States of America.


Carolyn Parker and the whole Blackman Family, Gary, Marlane, Mark and Alan.
