Default PGR Mission

Six of us joined up with another approximately 50 riders to welcome home Marine Andrew Love yesterday 6-5-07.
Andrew lost both legs and suffered a severe head injury that left him in a coma for four months. He did not return to the States with his Marine reserve company when they completed their deployment to Iraq.
Andrew was flown in to Bay City, Mi. on a private plane and was greeted there by his mother, fiance, many of the marines from his company, many
of his friends from school and 2 long flag lines that cheered him on as he walked from the plane to the terminal without assistance. This was miraculous considering he only started walking on his prosthetics last week. A great display of courage from a fine and brave young man. He was given a police and PGR motorcycle escort to an assisted living facility where he will continue his recovery.
I can only have hope for this young man and his fiance. I pray she is woman enough to stick with him and help him on this long journey of recovery.
The one thing about this mission that had a special significance was that it was for a living veteran rather than for one in a flag draped coffin.

God bless you Andrew Love - U.S. Marine
