    It was an honor to stand for this American hero at Ft Belvoir, It is always a humbling experience when folks that are total strangers ask us to be present at such a sorrowful time in their lives. Months later he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery and I was proud to stand in his honor there as well. I thank the Stern family for the honor and priveledge they gave us, PGR, by asking us to share part of that day with them. Every mission that we are asked to attend is very special to all of us and I can speak for everyone of us PGR riders when I say Thank You for the opportunity to be there as your loved one is laid to rest. It is taken very seriously by us all and always will be for as long as we will be “Patriot Guard Riders”
