The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes of the Day and Week!

The Colonel’s Motivational Quote of the Day and Week!

Good “Red Friday” Morning from the “Mobile Eagle’s Nest” here in Fort Worth, TX — 14 June 2019!

Day 12 ended with a great “Meet and Greet” from the city of Forth Worth, TX where SGT Billy Mullins and I had the pleasure of meeting with a great group of veterans for dinner at Uncle Julio’s Mexican restaurant. We were able to get several group photos of the entire group to include some wives. We had Andie Coller meet us there as well from Washington DC to capture some unique stories for her piece she is writing for the Washington Post on medical debt and it’s affects on our nation’s veterans and their families. Today is Day 13 as Billy and I head for Salina, KS. Keep those donations happening everyone. Picked up a lot last night from he group here in Fort Worth, TX and that was awesome.

We’re 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 help me & my RIPRIDE4VETS team?
