The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes of the Day and Week!
Good “Red Friday” Everyone from the “Mobil Eagle’s Nest” here in Placerville, CA — 7 June 2019!
SGT Billy Mullins and I complete about 2,300 miles of the 7,725 Mile (14-Day) RIPRIDE4Vets yesterday and are off for a big ride today with the First stop in San Fransico, CA to Meet Capt Jim Wong, and PO3 Aaron Hassay for breakfast and interviews this morning. We have a 2 hour 129 mile trip there, and then after breakfast we take off for Las Vegas, NV to meet with Steve Durgin, CEO & Founder of Victory for Veterans Foundation for the evening (8 Hours, 580 miles) into the desert.
We’re raising $50,000 to abolish $5Million in Healthcare Debt for our Veterans.
