Hi all.

It is with a sad heart that I have to notify you that there will be another funeral in California. We spoke to the family and they would like to have us there to honor their husband, son, nephew, and cousin.

The funeral will be on Saturday Jan 7 2006 at 2 PM at the Church of the Recessional; the address is 1712 S Glendale Ave Glendale Ca.

I will be there at 10 AM to get us situated and to make place for all the bikes. please show up to show your respect to a man who knew what we meant when we say "these colors do not run". Spc Gudino was injured a while back yet he elected to go back to iraq to be with the men and women that depended on him. He came home to us now, its our job to show him that he can depend on us.

ALL BIKES WILL MEET AT GLENDALE HARLEY AT 1:00 PM ON SATURDAY 1/7/06

pass this on to any and all groups, clubs, and organizations you can.

just to be clear... a motorcycle is NOT REQUIRED to ride with the PGR. We have several non riders attending missions in Mass.

Hi guys - just received this from the PGR..an awesome org. that Becca turned us all onto..
If BK deleted the links, email me & I'll send em.

(Had to edit per BK 2000 "rules")

Hey Members,
I hope this email finds you all well. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the support that you have provided the greatest heroes in the world, The American Soldier.

I have been amazed to watch the outpouring of love and respect from each and every one of you in a time where the loved ones need it most. I wanted to point out a couple of new additions to the website and make you aware of a couple of ways that you can further help the PGR complete its mission of supporting our troops and their families.

The first opportunity that we have is for events to be held in Sturgis this year. We have been blessed to be asked by the Buffalo Chip and the Healing Field foundation, to properly salute our veterans and active duty military families. Our main event will be the healing field that we will have on the buffalo chip property. This will be a sea of flags that will represent every service member who has given their life in the pursuit of the global war on terrorism. It will cost us about $45,000 to procure the flags and get them all mounted in Sturgis. We are asking individual members and supporters of the Patriot Guard Riders, if they are so moved to do so, to sponsor a flag on the field. Any fund received will pay for the flags, and will give a small amount to the Patriot Guard Riders Fallen Warrior Scholarship Fund. To date we have about half of the flags sponsored but still need to sponsor another 1200 to break even on the healing field. The donation to sponsor a flag is $25. The sponsoring member's name will be associated with that sponsored flag.

In closing I just wanted to take a minute to let all of you know how humbling an experience the last 9 months have been. Thanks Again,

Jason "Waldo"

Sadly, we have another one to support - This Saturday in New Jersey.......

Subject: PGR Saturday 13May06

FINAL ITINERARY: Sgt. Matthew J. Fenton, 24, USMC of Little Ferry, N.J., died May 6 at National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Md., from wounds received while conducting combat operations against enemy forces in Al Anbar province, Iraq on April 26. He was assigned to Marine Forces Reserve's Inspector and Instructor Staff, 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, Fort Devens, Mass.

LEO Coordination has been arranged and all is set for Saturday morning service in Little Ferry NJ.

Staging area will be 0730-0845 on Hudson St. Hackensack between Moonachie Ave and the Little Ferry border. The southbound side of the street will be closed for traffic with motorcycle access only.

To staging area:

From Points north and west,

Pkwy or 287 to Rt 80 East to exit 66---to stop sign make left on Vreeland---to light make right on Hudson.
Go to barricades and motorcycles.

From Points south and east,

Rt 95 or GSP to Rt 80 West to exit 66---bear right onto Kennedy----to light make right on Hudson.
Go to barricades and motorcycles.

Departure will be at 0850 sharp. We will be police escorted to the service and set up our bikes on both sides of the street where we will set up a "Corridor of Flags" along the foot procession route that the family will take from the service to the Church. A cremation is planned so there will be no ride to a cemetery. We will line the procession route and stand by until the family leaves after the service.

I have had contact with the National President of the Nam Knights and a rep of the Knights of Fire. They have expressed interest and will be joining us at the staging area.

Lets have a good show of support---A relative is a PGR - One of our own !!

Hey Angel retired AF here, twenty-two and a half years!




Hey Angel having a motorcycle is not requirement to join or go on the missions. Some members are unable to ride due to physical limitations. All have one thing in mind, to show respect for the fallen and shelter the families. Sign up today.

I don't get the VA newsletter, can you send me the site?

Nice to meet you,
Betty

Nice to meet you Betty!

Not sure what funeral moonsmaiden is talking about in May? Normally have approx. a couple of days between notification and mission. I have gone to three and Jerry has made five of these. Had protesters at the last one, that was enough for us to get us fired up! Gonna make sure that we make as many missions as possible. It's pretty disgusting what some people will do to get media attention!

Betty

Jerry..they already had the service...
down south...the funeral will be in May at the Cpl's hometown
it's ligit...

Lance Cpl. Nicholas J. Sovie, 20, of Ogdensburg, NY gave all on February 17, 2006, while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. The funeral services for Lance Cpl. Sovie, with full military honors, will be held on May 25, 2006. Further details are in the works and will follow at a time closer to the services.

Dyna,
Sorry, didn't mean to sound that it wasn't legit, just never heard of one spread out so far. I've seen several on the PG site with different escort and funeral dates. Guess I should have checked the site. Thanks for getting the word out about this important cause!
I know first hand what it means to moral to know there are people back here supporting the fighting soldiers.

Betty (yes, women are veterans also)

Yesterday we had another mission in Waco. From what the State Capt said, it was the second largest for the state. Don't know exactly how many attended but it was beautiful to see the waves of red, white, and blue to send these fighting men and women off with the respect they deserve.

Peace be to the families.
Safety to all supporters,
Betty and Jerry

Just finished a mission Saturday here in Colorado. Over 250 of us showed up, and the protestors went home. Seems they were intimidated by the size of our group, from what they told the cops.

PGR is over 16,000 strong and climbing.

Thanks Falcon we are joining today as well...!!!
