I want to thank all of you. I am a Wounded Warrior and this weekend was the most uplifting event I have ever witnessed. Originally I am from TEXAS and know how we Texans are the other soldiers were amazed at the generosity love and support of everyone there. Again I and all the other soldiers of 101st Airborne Fort Campbell Ky. want to say thank you for everything. GOD BLESS everyone who helped in any way or form.

Just want to say THANK YOU Victoria, Calhoun, De Witt and all the other communities that are showing these warriors that we cared about them. There is no better way to show that a country cares about her service members than to support her veterans, specially the wounded ones.
correction - North of Victoria - oops
I myself was fortunate enough to be on the Hwy 59 south of Victoria near Inez when the Warriors came by. I was amazed at the size of the caravan that it entailed. This was a motorcade fitting for a president. There were numerous law enforcement vehicles from all over escorting these fine soldiers. And yes I thought the motorcycles would never stop coming. Awesome! I believe there was also the local Volunteer Fire Department from Inez that was posted at the on ramp showing there support. It made me very proud of all those that support these soldiers and that put this event on. I salute you! If I can next year I will try and get involved somehow to help.
I have to say this was an awesome event. I was also part of group of at least 200 motorcycles who joined with the buses at Prasek's in Wharton County and followed them to Victoria and on to Port O'Connor. The showing of support along the way was humbling to see, and made me very proud to have been a part of it.
God Bless all the men and women for their sacrifice and may the weekend bring some relaxation to their lives, and may we never forget the price they've paid for us.
