To a Patriot Guard Rider at Pop's funeral from Julie III

Got this from Julie III a little bit ago with a request that I post it.

While leaving Pops service yesterday, I nearly ran in to a Patriot rider in the vestibule.
Older, gray beard, about 5'10", leathers, with a 'Nam patch on left upper side of vest.
I said, "Oops sorry, thank you for your service."
He replied, "No, thank you. The redheaded whirl-wind, right?"
I was gobsmacked.
I smiled and nodded.
ONLY way was if he was a reader of Kenny's Blog.

Sir, I thank you for taking time out of your holiday weekend to honor one of our fallen.
How in the world you connected me as the 'red headed whirl-wind' is beyond my comprehension, I try to keep a low profile.

So please....out yourself.

Julie III

I don't think any of us have a clear idea how far and wide the III to III message has gotten. But that doesn't mean it can't travel farther. Spread the word.

Cool, thanks for letting me know.

Partner, you may not claim III but if you ride a bike, you love your freedom and you're probably very independent. If you also believe in our Constitution and wish for a return to a Constitutional government to pursue your freedoms and you're willing to stand up and fight for what you believe in, then I'd say you've got a pretty damned good handle on The III.
Email me sometime. We'll talk more about it if you'd like.
