From the Elder Eleven Committee

The Elder Eleven Committee asked me to pass on their sincere thanks for all that was done yesterday by the OPGR to make it one of the highlights of the year. The honor and respect shown was being talked about at the football game that night as well as at the reunion for the class that included Principal Tom Otten. The guys came, set up enough flags to make the place look like Washington D. C. Stood with honor and respect and then packed up and left without asking for a thing were just some of the comments I have heard.

Please pass along to Steve and all the others that I did not have their email address handy.


22 September 2014 Sgt Lynn Crowell's burial


I want to thank you for the heroic effort to get the escort together and provide the Patriot Guard for Lynn Crowell’s burial. Lew has already sent photos to me, and I salute you and the guard for what you did. Ronald Schall did a great job as ride captain.

May you be blessed in your deed! (James 1:25)

While on the road the other day I was passed by a Patriot Guard on a bike. This both made me feel proud and good but also saddened. I had never seen a group on the road before. At the next red light I jumped out of the car and proceeded to shake hands and thank them. My wife didn't know what to think. I never did anything like that before and I surprised myself.

I hope this doesn't sound like bragging. All I am trying to say is thank you. I don't ride and for 40+ years I carried guilt and shame but have recently started to turn the corner on my feelings. I am so glad that there are groups of strong people who have carried the standard so others won't forget. Once again, thank you.

Please accept my sincere gratitude for the support your riders provided to the funeral of my father, David L McCabe, Korean War Veteran.  Bob Woods is a true gentleman and a great representative of what I believe to be a wonderful tradition of honor and remembrance.  

My entire family was honored to have the Patriot Guard Riders add dignity and color to the honors provided our father.  Please keep up the great work.

Dear Mr. Hamilton, Mr. Rayburn and the Patriot Guard Riders

Thank you so much for your presence at my uncle's funeral -Sgt. Albert Robert Petrocy 11/10/14.  You came on such short notice and yet you dedicated your entire day to him.

Your compassion and respect for a soldier you didn't even know was deeply moving. You brought patriotism and dignity to his funeral. The prayer and salute at the casket, the motorcade and your presence with him until he was entombed touched our hearts. I know he was comforted by all that you did. My parents and I can never thank you enough.

Please know how much you are admired and appreciated. Thank you for the honor you give to so many.
May God bless you for your sincerity and genuine kindness.
