MISSION ATTENDANCE

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Patriot Guard Riders and Associates,

I am forwarding this message from one of our members regarding attendance at our missions. I will let him say what he feels.

 

To all members of the PGR (which I understand that’s there is 1300 – 1500 of us):   I am a five-year member that is retired injured and with medical problems. I have done over 550 mission. I’m sorry to say that it is always been the same 8 – 25 members that show up, some that seem to only show up on high profile missions. Unfortunately, lately its only been 6 – 12 of us showing up and many times its just the 6 – 8 that always do. As a PGR member, I understand that you just can’t make a lot of mission. but over the course of a year, you should be able to come out a few times.

 

With 1300 – 1500 member we should have a better showing then we do. Many of us seem to count on others to show up and think that’s fine. But just a little reminder that the ones that show up all the time most are in there 70’s. Many have been doing this for many years and some are thinking that they have done enough. Some have medical problems, but still, find the time and energy to come out. 

 

I guess what I’m saying and asking all the members is it’s getting harder and harder to continue without some more of you helping out. My final words are this. THERE’S MORE TO BEING A PGR MEMBER THAN WEARING A SHIRT, HAT OR PATCH ON YOUR VEST.  A little help is needed and would be greatly appreciated. Please see what you can do to help out from the tired ones.

This is Mac again. I hope that all our members will take to heart what Mark is saying. Us older members are getting tired and some of us have physical difficulties that make it a hardship to attend every mission. We are just asking for some additional support from the membership.
Thanks for all you can do.
Respectfully,

MAC MCARTHUR
