The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes of the Day!

The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes of the Day!

Good “Saturday” Morning Everyone from the last day of the “Mobile Eagle’s Nest” here in Salina, KS — 15 June 2019!

Happy Anniversary to my wife Bella Burroughs!

Well, today is the last day for SGT Billy Mullins and myself for the RIPRIDE4Vets 2nd Annual Ride. It has been a very cool, but long adventure for both of us over the last 14 days riding across America and meeting a lot of great veterans and their wives in each city we stopped in. Once again, we have to mention the great veterans that continue to contribute to this great cause of abolishing healthcare debt for our veterans and families across this great nation. We called and out Veterans answered the call once again and again. The donation site will be left open until we hit our goals. Day 14 and Billy is trailer his bike back to Richmond Virginia and I’m riding my back to Castle Rock, CO – thanks for following us on the journey everyone!

We’re still working to raise $50,000 to abolish $5Million in Healthcare Debt for our Veterans. “I need your help in raising that $50,000”. Will you continue to help me & my RIPRIDE4VETS team?

Thank you for all your support! COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
