Rob 'Bees' Butler Bio:
I was born in Shreveport, Louisiana while my father, a career Air Force officer, was stationed at Barksdale AFB so I've have been around the military all my life. Our family has served our country in the Air Force, Army and Marines since 1778. I served with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment as a platoon leader and staff officer after attending Northwestern State University in Louisiana. Since my service I've worked in the financial services industry and currently work for Capital One Financial.
From a very early age I was taught to respect our flag, our country and those that stood for it and our way of life. Those lessons and the way my daddy passed them on to me are forever ingrained in me. I was first aware of the PGR in 2008 and attended my first mission, a KIA, in 2009. Like many I was profoundly moved and knew right away that not only was I where I was supposed to be but I was with the people I was supposed to be with. In the literally hundreds of missions since that day as a member, Georgia Ride Captain and as your Vice President of Members my feelings haven't changed. The Patriot Guard is not just what I do, it's become part of who I am. It is my honor to stand with all of you.
I live in Columbus, GA, near Ft Benning and in my spare time enjoy woodworking, shooting, playing guitar and of course riding my motorcycle.
