    If there is one holiday suited to our mission it is this one. Please attend in remembrance of those who served and died defending freedom across the globe.


    Thirteen bikes including one bike with two up riders and two first mission riders turned out for the Memorial Day ceremony hosted by VFW Post 4443. Counting flag wranglers Nicki and Soup Campbell fifteen total in attendance. Extra kudos to Nicki for having all five military flags. The Post Commander was especially grateful for that. Due to the heat, the Post Commander kept the ceremony to less than thirty minutes. The PGR was especially grateful for that!



    Just a note thanking you and all the Patriot Guard Riders for being at the memorial service. Your presence added a lot to the significance of the ceremony.
    Again thank you and all you do for veterans.
