I did several rides "missions" (more bs) and was proud to be there for the fallen.
I wish I could still do it but its no longer about the soldier and their family but about how cool they are.
I wore a patch to bring attention to the soldiers not to myself. hundreds of time I was asked what we do and when I answered the question people smiled and a few teared up.

I didn't like the term at first but the mission was to escort the soldier home.
