Hello I'm David. Just learned about this from my best friend and think this is such a great service and shows great respect for those that have served. I have not served but m proud to honor those that have.

I am Michael Menard. Former Army chopper pilot (no combat), current rider. I was on active duty from 8/75 to 8/84, and NG from 2/87 to 4/93. Just joined this forum. I saw some requirements, on the home site, pertaining to helmets, reflective wear and such and would like some clarification as the site is now down. I split my weekends between Denver and the springs as that’s where my girlfriend lives. If I attend a mission, can she come? What would be the requirements for passengers, same as riders? I have joined this forum, so not sure i am a 'member'?

Thanks

Mike

Hello and Welcome David and Mike! Mike, thank you for your service.. In terms of ride requirements, all riders on the bike whether rider or passenger must conform to the rules. They are also listed on our home page here: http://www.coloradopgr.org/MilitaryRideRequirements.htm And yes, everyone is welcome, although we do ask that each person attending a mission on or in a military facility fill out the DoD access form, whether or not you have a valid Military ID. The form can be found here: http://forums.coloradopgr.org/topic56-ft-carson-and-peterson-afb-access-list.aspx

Hello all; I am Dan "Frosty" LaChance, with wife Connie. We were 'broken in' to the group this past Saturday with a send-off at COS airport; we met Cager, Kay, Sandi (with an "I"), Abe, and another newbie (Greg). I'm a 10+ year Air Force vet; I discharged in '99 and have been working in the defense contract relm (TRW & N. Grumman) ever since. We've lived in Colorado since '96; our home town is Miami, FL; we've lived in Falcon since 2005. Through some dear friends, we've found our way to the PGR, and plan on being as committed as time and resources allow.

Hi all - I'm Teresa. I'm a proud Air Force mom. First heard about PGR quite some time ago through friends who ride--today, I saw PGR on a mission for the first time. It was a humbling experience because immediately as PGR came through the intersection, I understood that the procession following was in honor of a hero. I'm in SE Denver and I ride.

Hello to everyone from a very new member. I joined on 7/28/2010 and participated in my first "mission" today, 7/30/2010. I was impressed with the professionalism and presence of the PGRers provided to a very moving ceremony. I am glad I decided to join such an organization as this. I will try to participate in as many functions as I can (I am almost 70 years old, and have titanium joints in my knee and shoulder, steel rods in my back due to two bad aviation crashes, one fixed-wing....C-123-K and on erotary-wing...UH-1-E Huey Dust-off Medivac mission in the north). I put in about 25 years in the US Navy, and my son is also retired from the Navy in 2009. Been stationed in Vietnam, Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Kuwait), and many, many other medical facilities throughout the world and CONUS. Dr. Roger S.

I am David Price and I am a 12 year Veteran of the Army. I am currently living in Highlands Ranch and look forward to the Missions that I will be doing with this organization. I don have a question based off of what I read at the start of this thread. It states "riding or caging" I am assuming that caging is win a car / truck?
