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.

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

the ability to get what has been donated or raised to the Veterans that need assistance.

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

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????

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

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

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!
