A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…

Memorial Day @ Fort Custer

patriot_guard_riderI spent this past Memorial Day at Fort Custer National Cemetery. I go every year and take photographs. Being a disabled veteran, that day hold special significance to me. I have a fist full of photos from this year and years past, but this one in particular steps out to me.

This gentleman is a member of the Patriot Guard Riders. The PGA is not a government recognized veterans group like the VFW or the American Legion. They are just a group of men and women who care so deeply about the folks in uniform and their sarifices that they give their time over and over again hundreds of times each year, not just on Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day.

Check out the PGR, it will do your heart good…
