August 31, 2022
Ladies and Gentlemen of the PGR,
As my term as your National President draws to an end at midnight tonight, August 31, 2022, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to each and every one of you for your dedication to our Veterans, the honor and respect you have shown, and for your support of this wonderful Organization. I am proud to be part of an organization such as the PGR.
It has been my great honor to serve you and this Organization as your National President. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the National Board of Directors, the Regional Ride Captains, the State Captains, the General Membership, and how you have all performed over the years. I have had the opportunity to talk with hundreds of you over the last 4 years. We have had our ups and downs, but they have mostly been ups. For that, I am grateful.
We have watched as this Organization has grown and flourished to become what it is today. With that in mind, we must not let this great Organization slip away. Most of our members are getting older and cannot perform all the functions that are required of us. We must endeavor to bring more of the younger generation into membership.
Tomorrow, when I awaken as a member of General Membership, I know that the Patriot Guard Riders will be in great hands from the National Board of Directors down to the newest member. Each of you should be proud of your accomplishments. You are the backbone of this Great Organization! I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, safe travels, great health, and continued growth. I hope to see you someday in the Flag line.
David ‘Bear’ Noble
