    We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of our veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

    Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest peacefully in the arms of God.

    Bruce Berg, ISC, USN (Ret)

  7. When we lose a loved one one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us.

  9. I just wanted to thank the Patriot Guard for being there to honor my Grandfather on his final day and for the kind words given above. It meant a lot to my family and myself to see the PGR members that braved the cold to show their honor.

    Thank you again,

    Charles Doolittle
