It has been a pleasure working with Ron & Lea the Old Guard Riders Inc. from the first day I meet them,I knew it would be a great organization to be a part of, and The mission statement locked me in. They have always been very professorial and treated myself and all others around with the utmost respect. I was heavily involved in bringing The Old Guard Riders (Phoenix) Non-Profit L.L.C. to its current state with several others, we have overcome several minor hurtles and are able to continue this mission statement. Thank you Ron & Lea for allowing us to continue what their wonderful hearts started several years ago. We will carry on and carry it out to serve our veterans. We still continue to grow every week. It has been a great pleasure working with them both, If anyone would like more information on The Old Guard Riders (Phoenix) Non-Profit L.L.C. Please contact: Tarra Matyas tarramatyas2@gmail.com or dougmucklow@gmail.com The Old Guard Riders (Phoenix) Non-Profit L.L.C. will continue on Doug Mucklow Vice President Old Guard Riders (Phoenix) Non-Profit L.L.C.

Reach into the media for more help with the up coming events, to keep the public more informed of what is coming up, so they can support the events.

How did you learn about this organization?

Ron & Lea reached out to the M.M.A. of Arizona I was The Phx District Manager, I meet with them in Mesa and all there members about bringing more motorcycle riders to support their events and help the organization grow.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Rasing funds to provide essential service's to our veterans and their families

What is its top priority in the long run?

More field work to reach the veterans that are hard to get to, who haven't communicated for years, Especially the one who were let down after returning from War Time. Also to work harder bringing All walks of our american life style (Car Clubs Bike clubs Music people) working together to help our veterans, After all with out them were would we be????

I have been a part of the Old Guard Riders for over two years and have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and dignity with which the organization conducts itself. I participated in escorting the remains of seven service members from Apache Junction, AZ to Phoenix, AZ for internment in the National Cemetery there. The Old Guard Riders worked closely with the Missing in America Program to ensure the service members received all the honors and recognition befitting individuals who had served this great nation. The entire ceremony was conducted with a level of professionalism and dignity I have yet to see surpassed anywhere. As a member of the Old Guard Riders, I helped coordinate the OGR's participation in the Buffalo Soldier Plaza dedication ceremony on Fort Huachuca, AZ. I worked with members of the Old Guard Riders and the protocol office on Ft. Huachuca to have the cremains of CPL Isaiah Mays present at the ceremony. CPL Mays, a Medal of Honor recipient, had served at Ft. Huachuca. The OGR untiringly sought to and accomplished having CLP Mays exhumed form an unmarked grave in a barren field, transported across the country with an honor escort and interred in Arlington National Ceremony with all the honors and dignity due a Medal of Honor recipient. I am proud to be a part of the Old Guard Riders and will continue to support the organization in all it's endeavors on behalf of all veterans, both living and deceased.

being part of several ceremonies dedicated to honoring servicemen who had been forgotten.

change nothing.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their untiring and unfailing dedication to helping veterans.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

of the highest caliber and dedicated to helping veterans

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help feed, shelter and provide needed care for America's forgotten warriors.

Ways to make it better...

It could not have been.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of knowledge on the part of the general public in general on the dire conditions of many of America's veterans and how the public could help this situation.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I consider it an honor and a privilege to be part of such an honorable and dedicated organization.

As the Founder/President, I am extremely proud of our service record to veterans. Old Guard Riders Inc was deliberately created with a very broad Mission Statement. We wanted to create an organization that could fill almost any void in the cause of assisting America's veterans - whether alive or deceased. Whether feeding and clothing the homeless veteran or finding and interring the unclaimed remains of a veteran, we wanted to serve a broad spectrum of needs. Old Guard Riders Inc. has no paid officers or staff, so the donations that we receive go almost entirely to the needs of the veterans.

I have been involved with this organization from its very inception.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to make Old Guard Riders Inc more visible to veterans in need as well as perspective volunteers and donors.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Whether working to help againg, homeless, disabled or disadvantaged veterans, I love what we do. I believe that we are making a difference in the lives of those we touch.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

totally selfless and dedicated. Outstanding people who really care about veterans and are willing to go the extra mile to help. Our volunteers are the greatest advertising this organization has.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

the possibilities are endless.

Ways to make it better...

This organization, like all other organizations, must find its way to the awareness of those it desires to help as well as volunteers and donors. Finding ways to accomplish both of these tasks has been very time consuming.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money and volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you to all of our volunteers and donors. Without you, we could not accomplish our mission. Thank you!

I have had the priviledge of working with Ron and Lee Eppich on several of their projects. Some people wave the flag; then go home for dinner. Some people say that "they are going to do something": and then they don't. Some people salute the flag; and then they don't vote. Some people say that "they support vets"...as long as it is convenient. This has never been the case with the Old Guard Riders. How many people do YOU know that will take a week off from work to ride a motorcycle all of the way across this country to see that a black Buffalo Soldier, a soldier that died almost a hundred years ago, be given the honor that he deserved by being interred at Arlington National Cemetery? They may not be in a class by themselves, but it dosen't take long to call the roll. A veteran dies; they are there on a flag line. A military family needs help; they do the best that they can for them. Some people just talk; Ron and Lee do something about it. I am not a vet; I never served my country. I greatly appreciate people that do!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being there to help Ron and Lee escort the "American Traveling Tribute Wall" into Arizona. Seeing their diligence, efforts, and work in identifing the remains of "unclaimed" veterans in the "Missing In America" project.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more people of like spirit. Include the media more in their efforts.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I never feel like I am being taken advantage of for personal or organizational gain.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

For the biggest part, dedicated to the ends and means of this organization. I have only met one individual that was "in it for himself". However, he lives out of state and is not a factor in the day to day operations of this non-profit.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

There is NO answer or limitations to such a fortunate event.

Ways to make it better...

more people understood what the Old Guard Riders stands for and what they do to support our veterans both living and passed on.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

(1)Letting others know who they are and what they do for our veterans. (2)Funding, either public or private, for their projects. (3) Expanding a standard "day" to 26 or 28 hours so that Ron and Lee can get more stuff done.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Keep true to your faith, dedication, and goals. There are so many people that depend upon you, your work, and your honesty.

I have worked with Old Guard Riders Inc. on several of their veterans projects. I provided the sound system and music for their events. They are extremely dedicated to veterans and will do anything to help veterans. They exhumed and moved CPL Isaiah Mays to Arlington National Cemetery. They exhumed and moved PO2 Stephen Staggs from an indigent cemetery to the AZ National Cemetery in Phoenix AZ. They feed the homeless and do so much more. Support this group.

I am the Casualty Coordinator for the Office of the Arizona Governor and I have known Lea & Ron for several years, now. They have turned their grief and the loss of their son, Sgt Robert Eppich, into a concerted effort to bring joy to the lives of other veterans and military members. Most of the programs they provide to help the families who have lost loved ones, homeless and our wounded warriors, they fund from their own pockets. I love them!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

There are no ego trips or expectations for personal glory with these two & the volunteers. They are grounded, down to earth and truly give of themselves to help others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save the world!!!
