Thank you letters



The Patriot Guard Riders appearance at the graveside and the memorial service was a wonderful tribute to my Dad.  You all need to know that my Mom was very surprised and appreciative. Many of my generation remember the Vietnam War and who still feel the shame for how veterans were treated.  What your organization, as well as many others, does insures that we Americans don’t repeat that same mistake of ingratitude.

Please let all in your group know the Richards family is grateful for the honor shown my Dad.

— Hal Richards
