Dear Mr. Bob,
Thank you so much for having the PGR
welcome my son home! It was such an
honor having the PGR at my home! Nick
felt very honored having them welcome
him home! I'm actually at a loss for
words. There were many tears when
these men and women rode up to our
home. I am forever grateful to all of
Hugs..... Jeanie Isaacs

I just want to say Thank
On Saturday, June 26th my sister in
law came home from Iraq with the Ohio
National Guard 16th Engineer Brigade.
As we waited for the buses to
appear, we heard fire truck and
Highway Patrol sirens, and the roar
of motorcycles representing the
Patriot Guard. As friends and
family were crying and hugging and
crying some more, there were about
two dozen leather jacket-clad,
grizzly and stereotypical looking
bikers (no offense) with flags flying
standing at the entrance in tribute
to 138 soldiers they had never met,
and will probably never see again.
As nice as it was to hear from the
Generals, the Governor, Senators, and
Representatives, I was more touched
by the presence of the silent
sentinels who had escorted them over
100 miles from the border and
disappeared in the roar of engines.
I knew that the Patriot Guard showed
their support of soldiers at
funerals, so in a way I had hoped
never to see them. I was
honored by their presence at such a
joyous occasion though.
God bless America.
God bless the Patriot Guard.
Thank you for providing an escort
home on May 10, 2010 in Westerville,
Ohio. Our maintenance manager, Lt.
Colonel Glenn Gmitter and his 204th
Eng. Detachment came home safely
after a year in Afghanistan.
We're putting some photos of the
event in our quarterly employee
newsletter, including the Ohio
Patriot Riders standing guard.
What a beautiful thing you do.

Ralph and Bob-
We now fully grasp why
you all are so respected these days
for what you are doing.
Before these two TV
coverage's go off-line, please see
for yourselves how you so wonderfully
fit in to the whole memorial.
Everyone could not
stop talking about how remarkable it
was that your team stood at attention
with their flags through the entire
..and in that heat.
You all honored us
and, especially the memory of Kenny
Henninger, by your presence.
On behalf of all of
us, Thank you.
