Our largest escort yet! The Utah Patrioti Guard Riders, 14 motorcycles helped the old hippies and the family of Jordan Byrd roll into the Fisher House in style!
Army Spc. Jordan Byrd, was a 19 year old medic who was killed after sprinting 300 yards through an onslaught of artilery to take care of a wounded comrade. He stabilized his patient and was killed using his body to protect him.
The Patriot Guard Riders not only stood behind us as we did the presentation, they lined the entrance with flags and saluted as the Patriotic Pony entered the building.
Fisher House Assistant Manager Nellie and her staff, Renee and Barb were there to greet us. Today was also Jordan’s son Ayden’s birthday! Everyone sang Happy Birthday to him! Truly awesome day!
After the presentation, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch with residents, staff and family. By the time we left, several had changed into tie dye t-shirts! It was so cool! We even converted some bikers into hippies! hahaha
It was simply amazing! There were smiles everywhere! Hope we made you proud Jordan!
