Good bye, Patriot

I did not know Josh Tomlinson, but it was my honor to be a part of the silent guard, along with the Patriot Guards, Combat Veterans of America, and many other motocycle groups, as well as proud citizens of Minden, Louisiana. The first time I teared up was this morning when I got behind this. I knew they were coming to protect the family of Josh from those dirt bag protesters that call themselves Christians from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.

It was a sight to behold. Awesome photos here. I was so humbled by the support shown to this family and the dignity of the whole thing. He was appropriately honored. Apparently, the MORONS who promised to protest at his funeral heard about all us patriots here in Minden. Maybe they heard that we don't play that!!!!!!!
After the family went into the church, we went to line the road to the cemetery again displaying our flags and showing this family the love from this community. We counted 188 motorcycles following the family to the cemetery and we got started late counting. My guess would be around 400.
