Our First Mission As Members of the New Hampshire Patriot Guard Riders

Yesterday I wrote about the dedication ceremony I attended for the New England Gold Star Mothers.  What I didn't tell you was that Rick and I attended the ceremony as members of The Patriot Guard Riders.  It was our first mission, and it was a very humbling and emotional experience.

Patriot Guard Riders

 

The Patriot Guard Riders are motorcyclists who, at the request of a family, will gather and attend the funeral of a fallen American hero.

The group was originally formed to provide protection from protesters.  The riders, holding American flags, form a human wall and shield the mourning family from the hateful people trying to disrupt their service.

Membership is free.  They "don't care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether you're a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you're from or what your income is; you don't even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect."

  

The groups presence at the dedication ceremony was impressive...I felt honored to be part of it.
