Patriot Guard/ALR

Letter From CPL Chas Foltz

To the members of the KS Patriot Guard,

I wish to extend my most sincere gratitude for the heart felt compassion you people must have and what this organization stands for. Its truly rare these days to see people stand up for what's right and just. You should be commended on what you are doing for our fallen heroes. It speaks volumes for your organization and the good character your members display every time they show up at a funeral. I'm currently stationed in Baghdad, Iraq with the 130th Field Artillery Brigade from Topeka, KS. I will be back this summer and will begin attending funerals then, in support of the soldiers and their families. They deserve that if their family member has given their life in the name of "FREEDOM". Because "Freedom isn't free" it comes with a very high price and fortunately some of us are willing to pay for it if necessary. MSG Bernie Deghand & LTC Ron Rousser were friends of mine and members of my old unit 127th FA. Thank you for attending their funerals and for displaying pictures on your website. I was unable to go home for Bernie's funeral and the pictures on your website are beautiful. They really helped me deal with Bernie's passing, I want to thank you for that.
