On September 28, we stood in honor for Tom Kurtz at Fort Logan National Cemetery. We received the following thank you note:

I wanted to thank everyone from the PGR who came out for Tom Kurtz' funeral yesterday. They were awesome and Emily loved that they were there. I wanted to say thanx to everyone in person, but they were off to the next funeral before ours wrapped up. Please pass along my heart felt thanx for all you do. It made a big difference and was very much appreciated.

Thanx again. torch

Happy Veterans Day to all of you.

On November 22, 2017 the Colorado PGR stood in honor at the Interment Service for Stanley Kohtz. The following note of thanks and a generous donation was provided by his family:

Colorado PGR,

As a military spouse, daughter, niece and grand daughter, I would like to thank each and everyone of you, from the bottom of my heart, for all you stand for. Our family could not think of a better way to honor our uncle, Stanley Kohtz. In a torn country where many choose to cower, we stand proudly with you to honor those who have served. Thank you for being a blessing to many. You are seen and appreciated.

Love,


Proud Americans

Dear Patriot Guard Riders,


Thank you for what you do. Your organization is doing amazing things to honor those that are most deserving.


My dad was so very proud to have served his country and would be proud that donations could be made to organizations like yours in his memory and honor. (Johnny Svaldi, US Navy and Vietnam)


Thank you.

Last December, Richard A. Harper, a US Air Force Veteran died, without family, in Colorado Springs. Because he had no family, we made arrangements for his Interment at Fort Logan National Cemetery on June 19, 2017. Last Friday, because I was the point of contact, I received the following certificate:


[font=arial,helvetica]



The United States of America


Honors the Memory of


Richard A. Harper


This Certificate is awarded by a grateful nation in recognition of devoted and selfless consecration to the service of our country in the Armed Forces of the United States.


Donald J. Trump
President of the United States

On 1 Dec I received a framed photo montage/poster and letter from Jim Wear, President of the annual Salute to American Veterans Rally at Cripple Creek, thanking the Patriot Guard for our support. The letter reads:


On behalf of Pro Promotions and the Salute to American Veterans Rally Committee, please accept this certificate as a small token of our appreciation for your dedication to the Veterans Rally.


The 25th annual event this year went very well and was one of the largest turnouts in recent history. Of course, and as always, we could never have hoped to pull it off without the generous support from good folks like you.


We look forward to working with you again in the future. Your outstanding support for our United States Veterans and Troops, and your patriotism and dedication to our mission is greatly appreciated by everyone on this end. We hope you enjoyed the event and accomplished your mission as well.


With Respect,
James F. Wear
President
