September 11 Memorial Ride to the Flags- me and awesome sailors at Point Mugu Naval Base

I had the pleasure of participating in the Ride to the Flags on this past 10th anniversary of 9-11.
I think this is my favorite photo of the day where some of this countries finest took a moment for a photo op with me. Thanks to all who serve. I just can't say that enough!
I also took a moment to write a letter to a service person through the great program Operation Gratitude that was there.

A simple thing as a hand written letter can be special.

Anyone who makes things or gets things hand made knows this.
