On Sunday,

November 22, my uncle, Harold Harper was laid to rest in Bellaire, Ohio. He was 96 years old, and a veteran of WWII. When I arrived at the cemetery, the first thing I noticed was the group of Patriot Guard Riders that had assembled, and were lined up holding flags. I would like to thank those riders for myself and for my family.

What you do shows more patriotism them I have seen in a long time. May all your rides be safe, and know that what you do does not go un-noticed.

Thank you again,

Dear PGR Organization,

I am eternally, and fraternally grateful for your presence at my Fathers memorial service on 11/21/09 at the Moreland Funeral Home in Westerville, Ohio. I wish to thank the members that took their volunteered and uncompensated time to be there for my Father, and for my family. I did have the opportunity to say just that, and more to your members that were present this day. It was the most unselfish display of patriotism I have been fortunate enough to have witnessed now for the second time. As a veteran of the United States Air Force myself I have often felt over the years since I served my country proudly, that it is our duty to thank, and pay homage to our brothers and sisters in arms that have paved our path, for our God given freedoms we all enjoy today. My father was one of the fortunate ones who was able to come home from an enormously life costing war. As he told me many stories of witnessed horrors of war over the years, I felt no fear in making the decision to serve my country as he did. He was one of the few who volunteered to enlist in the navy during a time of war. The outcome of his unselfish decision could have been much different as it was for more than 400,000 other soldiers who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms for generations to come after we are gone. I know that the younger generations of my family that were present this day, for the first time understood from a personal experience what true patriotism really is. We can all hope what our children experienced today will give them a better understanding of what the meaning of the word freedom really is. I can tell you that our children also thank you for your presence today, as they begin to comprehend what our veterans and current soldiers sacrifice for them to grow up in a free nation. Again my family thanks you, as we go on our paths without our courageous father to guide us no longer, but we can take comfort knowing he knew of, and felt your presence and support.

Thank you for beginning the forum postings for my father. As tough of a time that this is for my mother, Belle, my older brother Larry (vet 70-72), my older sister Pam, and myself Jeff, we couldn't be more proud to see the notices coming in to pay respect for Dad. Continue to ride Brothers, peace and honor to you all.

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!

I would like to give a huge “Thank You” to the riders who escorted the guardsmen from OKC to Stillwater on Sunday, October 25th for their deployment ceremony.  What an awesome way to honor our men!  The soldiers and those of us in the families appreciate it more than words can express. 

God Bless Each and Every One of You!
