I want to again thank everyone that made the mission to Yorktown to honor SGT Gabe Green and stood in silent respect for him and his family. Your cooperation and dedication to the mission was exemplary and never in question. Everytime I would top a rise or a hill I could see in my mirrors the 18 bikes and one cage in perfect formation. It was a privilege to serve as your mission RC.October 28, 2009 at 2:10 pm #2259
What an incredible mission — I think the outpouring of support from the community of Yorktown was as impressive a sight as I've seen at any one of these missions.
It reminded me of riding through Johnson City just ahead of Lady Bird Johnson's funeral procession a couple of years ago.
Thanks to all of you who rode with us to help honor this fallen Hero, his family, and his community.
It's with the utmost humility and honor to ride amongst so many damned-fine patriots on such an important mission.October 28, 2009 at 3:08 pm #2260
