Dear Jim and all the PGNY,   

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful welcome you gave my grandson Ronan.  It was something I will never forget and I know he will never forget either.  There are no words to describe how wonderful your people are.   Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Ronan's grateful Grandmother,
Cathleen Johnson

Dear Jim,

Your people were incredible!  They conducted themselves with professionalism and pride and were a truly wonderful part of my son's homecoming.  Our family cannot thank you enough for the stunned look on Ronan's face as he was escorted by 18 decked out bikes and welcomed home by flags and cheers!  It will most certainly be a day he will never forget and a day we will be forever grateful for on so many levels.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to every one of your members for their time, effort and patriotism.

Sincerely,
Jenn Seltenreich

Jim,

Want to let you know how grateful my family is for the tremendous show of support for my brother-in-law’s funeral escort on Friday. I’ve participated in many escorts, but this is the first time I’ve been on the receiving side. With all of my experience I still wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming sense of gratitude my family and I felt for those who rode in the escort and/or stood the flag line at Calverton. I how have an even stronger sense of the importance of our mission. All I can say is THANK YOU and may GOD bless all those who participate in the PGR.

Sincerely,
Steven Frank

For support we provided through our Help on the Homefront Program:

ALCON,

I wanted to send a quick email to thank you all in assisting with this situation. It’s great to know when issues like this arise there are those among us who go the extra mile to see that the right thing is done and people are taken care of.

I work with Gold Star Families on a daily basis and they hold a very special place in my heart, for their sacrifice and the pain they endure on a daily basis. Many are able to handle this pain, others need a little more support to get through the tough times. That’s why I do what I do, and I know it has a lot to do with why PGRNY is in existence.

Anyway, you are doing a great thing and it is appreciated.

Thanks again,
