SFC Matthew I. Pionk, 30, Superior, WI

I apologize that this posting is so late; I thought I hit "submit" two days ago and just now realized it was not posted.

SFC Matthew Pionk died in Iraq on January 9, of wounds received from an improvised explosive device. His family has invited us to celebrate his life and stand in honor of his sacrifice.

This mission is in Superior, WI - tomorrow, January 19. Our neighboring state has been hit hard with casualties recently, and requested that Ride Captains from Duluth help out by organizing this mission. Together...we live up to the phrase "no borders."

Please check the mission thread for details:

If you are able to attend - please stay warm, and be SAFE. The windchills predicted for tomorrow are in the -40 range.

Rest in peace, SFC Pionk. We have the watch.
