The Colonel’s Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day & Week!


Good “R.E.D Friday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Eagle’s Nest” on the road, on the Harley for the “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021” in Duluth, MN! — 18 June 2021!


Let’s “Remember Everyone Deployed” until they are all home once again!


Day 16 of the "RIPRIDE4Vets 2021" was about 13 hours of riding for both me and the wife – We got to see some awesome things along the way as we crossed the Mackinaw Bridge and we rode the upper peninsula of Michigan yesterday and some great scenery of Lake Superior – Bella and I finally got to celebrate our anniversary. Nothing else special to report (See Pictures below)


Day 17 of 21 – Headed out this early this morning for a long ride all the through Plymouth, MN where we’ll meet with some of my former deployment ‘warriors” for lunch and then down to Chicago, IL to spend the evening with daughter number 2 (Madalyn)






Today’s Message is: “Who I Am Day!” Why Not?


“Who I am is what you get everyone. Respectful, genuine, and a ‘soldiers’ soldier willing to go the extra mile for our veterans. 10,000 and more to be exact. Who are you?" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs


We have (28) weeks and (197) days until 2022!


There will be NO “Warriors for Life” Saturday evening. The Colonel has a full day of riding on the “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021,” but will be back in full fashion the following Saturday.
