From Jack Casey 9/27/2010

Thank you to all the PGR and other Riders, Men & Women, Veterans & Civilians who came to Bradley to Welcome Home Our Veterans from Trip #6 to Washington, DC. The Veterans will be talking about you all for years to come. I am always Ass End Charlie following up the Rear making sure All the Veterans are in front of me, picking up stragglers, checking the bathrooms etc so I never see what you see as they approach you all. I can hear the cheers and hollering and I know what is going on. My job is to say thank you to all as I pass them whether they are Bradley employees, TSA, State Police, janitors, travelers who are applauding my Heroes. If I miss anyone it is not because I do not care but after a day of manuvering four busses and 200 Veterans and Staff from one Memorial to another, making sure they are safe, fed, cared for, performing miracles, keeping to schedule and trying to Make it the Best Day of Their Lives I was exhausted by the time we got to Bradley and I missed some whom I should have acknowledged. I am so sorry, Please forgive me. I TRIED MY BEST. Jack
