A beautiful day and a fantastic turnout of 16 Patriots standing tall this morning in honor for Mr. Robert Hamilton, a US Army veteran. We also had the honor of welcoming first-time rider(s) Ted and his son Daniel, who rode down from Belton to attend the mission. There were quite a few "thank you, guys" given out to us from arriving family members which just goes to show how much we do make a difference. My thanks to all who took time out of your day today to make a difference for Mr. Hamilton's family. Godspeed Robert and thank you for your service!
“I wanted to say thank you from my whole family and me to the men and women who came and held flags at my dad’s funeral. I remember my sisters and me showing up saying “wow is that all for Dad??“ It was such an honor to him and for us to see, it made us tear up.
Thank you all so much for doing what you do.
