From Spc. Matthew James Johnsons Dad - John H Johnson
To Mr. Doug Bley,
It would make me very happy if you could somehow pass this on to all your members.
Words cannot describe how We felt having the Patriot Guards support. Last Friday you were in the front us, guiding us from the funeral home to Fort Snelling where we saw you come out in Force. The shear number of members and flags was incredible. I, all my family, and friends were truly overwhelmed by your support , you guys brought a SMILE to my face during one of the worst days of my life, and for that, I want to thank you ALL. Caring enough to take your time to honor Matthew and support us with so many members was amazing, It was truly an honor to have you all there with us and every one of you has my respect and admiration. you should be Proud, Loud and Proud, of what you're doing. You made a difference in my life by honoring Matthews service to the Country. There is no doubt I will remember it forever you guys are the best!!!!
