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 you.
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.
