April 2009 Activities

Happy Spring MN PGR Members!!! It finally arrived!!

Our mission and event activities continue to keep us busy. The Send Offs were a packed few weekends and the Marine Welcome Homes were special as it was the first time we were invited. Special thanks to MGySgt Wald for his help.

The Remember the Fallen Tributes begin in May. These will be special days travelling across this state once again honoring our fallen heroes. Please use the event calendar to stay in touch with what is going on.

Make sure you mark June 20, 2009, down for the Patriot Ride in East Bethel. www.ThePatriotRide.org The organizers have once again focused on creating an event to remember. The special part of the day will be the closing ceremony in which a Vietnam KIA who did not receive military honors will on that day receive them.

Also do not forget the Vietnam Vet Welcome Home on June 13, 2009 held on the state capitol grounds. While undefined yet the MN Patriot Guard will be assisting that day in helping make sure it comes off in a great way for our vets who so richly deserve it! http://www.mnhonorsvietnamvets.org/

As always... Thank You for what you do. I don't think there has ever been such a volunteer group such as this. None of us are paid anything in terms of money.. but when I am with you I feel I am the richest man in the world. I am honored to stand with you any where, any time.
