In high school I worked for a man that taught me pride in work, and the sense of business. After high school I joined the Army, where in basic I made solider of the month, and later solider of the quarter this was all about being pride in my service to this Country. I learned through years of hard knocks, that to be successful you have to be the best at what ever it is you do, selling cars was very profitable for me, but took its toll on me as well, partying was my way of life. Family was something I longed for, when I had two beautiful children, Jessica and James, I felt my life was complete. I fought to keep the family together as it was falling apart, but on Christmas day the walls came tumbling down, as I went to visit my children, all I found was a vacant empty house… The insanity began, I didn't really care if I lived or die, many years later I still miss them and pray daily the Lord keeps them safe until I see them again. At my lowest I was homeless and living under the boardwalk… The pain was too much for me to bear… I wished and prayed as I drifted off to a drunken sleep that I would die... I cried out to God for help, slowly over the years the pain of my children dulled, but never full went away, the holidays were tough as people asked if I had heard from Jessica and James I avoid family for this very reason. I tried to get my life on track, first in Michigan, then in New York That is When It Happened I had a steady job, a new motorcycle, and was trying to go to church regularly, 15 years without a drink, life was getting a little better. I don't remember the exact day, but I meet a few bikers, they asked me what I was doing the next day, I told them I wanted to ride, they explained that they had a plan for me, I was to meet them for a funeral escort detail the next morning, we were burying a solider that was killed in Iraq. That next day changed my life, God had a plan for me. I remember the little girl that was no more then three after the funeral that day walking up to the casket of the soldier killed in action and patting it and laying her tiny head on the casket as to say " Don't worry Daddy I will be OK." The tears streamed down my face for hours. That was the beginning of my riding with the Patriot Guard… I attended as many funerals for soldiers killed in action as I could, nothing kept me from going, I rode in minus 30 degree weather, snow and ice, it really didn't matter, I had something to live for again, I felt the pain these families did losing a loved one, that is how I felt about my children. A Special Hero Sgt James John Regan, Army Ranger, killed on his 4th tour of duty to Iraq, stated to his father, when asked if this was the last tour, Jimmy (as his family calls him) stated I don't know dad if I don't go WHO will? I became very close to this family, I have his mothers prayer card from the day of the funeral in the breast pocket of my leather vest… At the funeral James' mother came up to me and gave me a big hug wiped a tear away and said for me to be strong for Jimmy's girlfriend. Shortly after this funeral, I gave away what little I had, packed a few clothes, a sleeping bag and a tent on to my bike and started to ride for soldiers killed in action. I lived in a tent and for the first time in my life, I felt I was doing something good. I have meet many wonderful people along the way, I have a million stories of God's blessing while out there, and a true sense of what the cost of Freedom in America really is. A Biker Wedding To Remember My wife and I had a biker wedding on 8-8-08, on our honeymoon we attended a funeral for a young married soldier, in Tenn. Our plate said Jersey, and they seen the flag on the bike that said just married… They were dumbfounded that we took a day out of our special week, to say thank you to someone we didn't know… As we walked up to the young wife of this fallen Hero, I felt at peace, looking back Lori and I remember this day as an Honor and a Privilege to have been there.... So as one Proud American, I say thank you to all members of our Armed Forces, past present and future.
