The Colonel’s Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!
Good “Saturday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse,” and all great connections. Welcome to the weekend from the “Eagle’s Nest” on the road “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021! — 5 June 2021!
Day 3 – Had a tough day riding in non-stop rain, but made it to Frierson, LA and Mett with Kevin Russell the Founder & Executive Director for Warriorhorse and nonprofit dedicated to Equine Therapy for veterans suffering with PTSD… See pictures below and short video on “bunny” the Arabian Horse that started the whole program, from there made it over to Batesville, MS for a dinner with LTC Jeff Shearer. It was great to meet Jeff in person. What a wonderful friend and veteran. Today is Day 4 and I’m headed to Alabama to see another great veteran SGT Michael Thorian and his wife Vicky, then off to Atlanta, GA for the night. Hoping for better weather today, at least dry and no wet.
Sorry very limited time, so responses over the next 20 days… (See pictures and video below)
Here is an awesome video from yesterday Day 3...
Today’s Message is: “Go with the Flow Day!” Why Not?
“Every day on the open road on the motorcycle (Harley) is an adventure and you really have to go with the flow and be alert all the times! We need to be alert about veteran debt and how it’s affecting them and their families. We can’t allow that debt to go with the flow. We need to abolish it!" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
