My First Patriot Guard Mission

I had the chance to go on a Patriot Guard mission this morning and took it. The Patriot Guard are a group of motorcyclists and non-riders who attend fallen servicemen and womens’ funerals at the invitation of the family to show respect to them and to ensure that their mourning is not interrupted by protesters.

It was an extremely emotional and moving day, one that words really do fail to describe. You’ll have to be there to understand. And I strongly suggest you find a mission near you and take the time to give something back to the family of someone who gave everything for us.
