Facebook Message from Ms.Sue Wheels Braman – “On behalf of Patriot Guard Riders of Arizona I would like to thank you for the burgers you made for us on Tuesday. It was a cold and rainy day as we carried CPO Barrow across the state from New Mexico to California. Having a warm welcome and a warm burger made a big difference to our riders.”

A few weeks after this video was shot, we received this message from Dan:

Hello my name is Dan I’m a USMC Vet. I would like to take a few minutes to tell you all that up by their bootstraps saved me in a big way they donated a nice conversion van to me which gave me the ability to finally be mobile to be able to have my freedom of movement back to be able to get more work have a roof over my head and help other Vets out by telling them about the program. Jay the founding father of up by their bootstraps has a heart of gold his outstanding non profit program has raised the bar like no other program has done before. His Gratitude Corner is an outstanding site to see what an ode to our vets and heroes who have made our country the greatest in the world. To all who read this please donate and help a vet in need and to all you vets out there if your in need please contact Jay. May God Bless Us All.
