Count Down to
Ride of the Patriot XXI
As we reflect on the times that have brought us together to commemorate and
memorialize those who have fallen, remember that they gave their lives to
protect and ensure our freedom now and forever. They fought for a noble cause.
They stood to defend ever vigilant. They made the ultimate sacrifice for our
liberty. WE WILL NEVER FORGET!
“Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.”
— Ronald Reagan

A Special Message:
Norman was my second cousin. His dad and my grandmother on my dad's side were
brother and sister. I never met him before he went to Vietnam/Cambodia, but I do
remember going to the funeral home and graveside service. I guess that's what
prompted me to take the assignment to the "Old Guard" in 1979.
