    Great mission today, folks. The family and friends of Technician 5th Grade Wolfe could not stop thanking us for our being there. Instead of feeling awkward, by the end of the services it was as though we'd all made new friends.

    Including Robert our Flag Wrangler and me there were 14 PGR in attendance. Thanks, Robert for doing this- and thanks to all for making a difference.

    Also thanks to the 4 APD Motors riders for making the ride safe and easy for us. Those guys are awesome.




    Received this email from the family:


    Our family was totally impressed by the Patriot Guard Riders that escorted John Wolfe. They were very professional and we appreciated their service so much.

    Thanks again,

    Allan Holmes
