I've known Lea and Ron Eppich for a couple of years from my place of employment and I can say that they have hearts of gold. They live for helping out the vets whether alive or passed on. What they do is amazing and I have to tell them keep it going. It takes people like the Eppichs to make the vets feel like they have family and a home.

I have worked a short time with my local chapter and found a great honor and respect among the fellow members and those that see our patches. I do this not because I have to but because it is for the greater good of helping fellow veterans with a hand up not a hand out. There are many that this organization has helped but there are many more out there that need our help. I find that this group is doing great work, I especially like that fact that we are giving proper burials to those that did not get one.

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

helping homeless veterans in our community and attending a funeral service.

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

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

help more veterans seeking help.

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

This organization puts the Veteran Military Men first and foremost, and does many things to raise the public awareness of Veteran' current hurdles. Old Guard Riders has focused on finding, identifying, and interring the cremains of Veterans abandoned across the United States, notifying living relatives when possible. I have participated in their Missing in America program, and it is first class. I can vouch for the ethics and standards set by the founders. If you support organizations to help our Veterans, please join this group.

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

The respect shown forgotten Veterans cremains left behind at funeral homes and mortuaries is heart warming. To finally give these Veterans a proper burial is a very important goal.

Knowing the Founders of this Organization, I wholeheartedly am HONORED to be a part of this group. I am the Celebrity Spokesman for this Organization, Because I believe in what they Do and What they Stand For. What they do in support of Our Troops and Veterans is Exemplary!

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

This group is wiling to accept members of all other groups. In my past experiences exclusional membership has left too many organizations trying for a common cause, working against each other
