All Gave Some…Some Gave All

They are gathering the horses on base Memorial Day at 0900.

They will meet in housing in front of the indoor basketball court ready to ride.

They Ride for our lost shipmates, battle buddies, swabbies, zoomies, rotor heads, and grunts.

They will be riding down the coast, through the towns and pass the Atlantic Garden Veterans Cemetery

They will have a safety brief and bike check before kickstands up

A wise man once said when we use the word They…reflect and contemplate…Who is They?

They is You
