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.

Damn I wish I got his name.

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.
