“There are many reasons why I enjoy participating in ‘The Ride’ to Washington,
D.C. every year. From a group perspective, the bonds of brotherhood that were formed by the Patriots Pack has been nothing short of incredible. With us, it’s much more than just a bunch of guys riding across the country on bikes; it’s about the comradery that has been shaped from a common purpose – to play a role in something much bigger than ourselves.
On a more intimate level, riding in honor of The Jillian Fund and Rolling Thunder is very personal for me. It’s one of the best ways I can think of to remember both of parents who I lost to cancer. Also, my father was a Navy veteran who participated in every major battle in the South Pacific during WWII which gives me a great platform with others to commemorate his service along with the rest of our veterans.”
