I know you don’t know me, but I would like to personally thank you for your support to the military men and women, if it wasn’t people like you out there we couldn’t fight for our freedom. I knew Lcpl Cody Stanley, my mother and father taught him in school, we both came in the marine corps just bout the same time, he came in about a week ahead of me, and was a good hearted kid, but most of all i just wanted to thank you for everything.”

A thank you note sent to Keith!
I found your information on the Patriot Guard Riders when I was trying to find funeral information for Cody Stanley. I am a Marine mom and my son is currently in Afghanistan. As I search the news each day, I obviously come across the fatalities and it always breaks my heart.
I just wanted to pass along my sincere thanks for how you support our military families. There are no words to explain how much your support means when our sons, husbands, brothers, etc. are sacrificing.
Thank you for taking time to honor our fallen.
Please pass my sincere thanks on to the others in your group.
God bless you!”
