  1. It is very difficult to define what a Patriot is, where they come from, how the grew into the person they became. All we know for sure is they all loved their country and have sacrificed more then anyone will even know or understand. The best we can hope for is to have met them, listened to their stories, and found the slightest hint into who they really were. Each one of them has a story and all of the stories are different. All we know for sure is God has blessed us with their presence and we are all the better for them.

    God Bless this PATRIOT.

    Mr. & Mrs. Wonderful

  2. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Yesterday the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Mr. Archie Doyt Gober United States Navy, as we Stood Tall and Silent during his funeral, rode with him one last time and stood again at his committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family prior to the funeral service.

    A very special thanks to Mario who provided the flags and water; to Laura and Mark, who so tirelessly gets our Missions out to the Riders; to Dan for getting the Missions posted on the National website; to Mark, Diann, Paul, Mike, Jeff, & Mario who served as pallbearers; and as always, to Mike, who took the beautiful photographs showing this family the true face of the Patriot Guard Riders, those who so willingly give of themselves and are found standing in the Flag Line.

    To Darryl, and all of Mr. Gober’s family and friends, thank you for allowing the Patriot Guard Riders to stand today in honor of this American Hero. May God comfort you in your loss.

    Tom S. Hardin
    Ride Captain
