I guess I'm starting to sound like a broken record here, But Men, women, and now children (had some great kids passing out water today)of the PGR, you never cease to amaze me. It was a great turn out for LCDR Mike Foster today. Thank each and everyone of you who made the trip today to honor him. I recieved many words of gratitude and appreciation from the Family and friends. They wanted me to let ALL of you know that our presence there today was very special to them. I had one elderly Gentleman come up to me at the end of the service and say, "When I drove in here and saw all these Motorcycles I thought, this must not be the right place!" Then he said "I think it is really great what ya'll are doing and want to Thank You." I shook his hand and told him it was an honor for us to have been invited.
Thanks again to all involved today and I hope everyone made it home safely.
