I recently wrote about attending a military funeral for a local soldier who died of injuries sustained in Iraq. What I didn't write about is an extraordinary group of individuals who really choked me up!
There are a group of motorcyclist who travel around the country and attend military funerals. They hold flags outside the funeral home and church - in horribly cold weather too! They ride beside the family's car in the motorcade to shield the family from any protesters with their large flags flying from their bikes.
I have no idea who they are, but they are my newest heroes!
It's wonderful to see the incredible support for the troops that has enveloped America in this war. Doesn't matter what side of the fence you are on - the support for the troops is incredible!
I love this group. I love the fact that they are there to show their quiet, constant support for the families. What a wonderful thing they do! If you know who they are - please tell me and give them the credit they are due!
