The Wife and I went on our first Patriot Guard mission today with the assistance of a Buddie of ours Sherm forum name (hndyman) whom has done many PGR missions.
The mission was to help the family of Sgt Joshua J Robinson (Cruz) KIA last Sunday in the Helmond Province of Afghanistan while on patrol,
to be transported with full colors of the PGR from Grand Island Nebraska to Hastings Nebraska.
Let me tell you people IT WAS A SIGHT TO SEE!
There was around 300 bikes and nothing but the utmost respect for the grieving family!


MY HEART HAS GROWN TODAY.

THANK YOU, Sgt Joshua J Robinson
For the ultimate sacrifice for our country :flg:

It never fails to humble me to tears when on a PGR mission. The friends and relatives of the heroes are always grateful and appreciative of our support. If you have never been involved with the PGR, you should consider joining to honor the fallen and living heroes of our country...God bless our fighting men and women!

While we was waiting for the body to be brought in by a charter jet I was telling Sherm, just when I was thinking that people in this country don't care anymore!
Just to be with that crowd gives me hope that there still is hope for us yet.

:cry: I also participated in a PGR Mission Saturday for one of our fine young men. As mentioned above the Family expressed their thanks many times to all of us and it always puts a lump in my throat. I cry almost every time I go on a Mission.

Jim,
Thank you very much for going out of your way and respecting his family,
JUST the fact that this young man was doing what he believed and was willing to die for US.
Your PGR mission has hit a chord with me because, WE (my family and I) was stationed at Warner Robbins A.F.B for a stint.
The people from this part of the country are more than words can say,
WELL,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I WILL CALL THEM ALL (Georgia) PEACHES :thumbup:
