June 28, 2005 one of the most painful days in the war on terror. NSW, JSOC, and America would lose TOO many brave warriors on this fateful day. May we ALL honor their sacrifice, and NEVER forget those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!!!
Today we salute all of those that we lost in Operation Red Wings. We owe these heroes a debt that we can NEVER repay, may we honor their memory each and everyday. To the families and friends of those we lost that day, and any other day…THANK YOU!!!
Txfrog, thanks for coming home and telling their story!!!
Remembering HURTS, forgetting HURTS WORSE!!!
3 Patriot Guard Missions in Caribou over the next couple of days. One for a retired soldier. Two for an active duty Army soldier killed when his motorcycle was struck by an inatentive driver. One life lived to the fullest, one come to an end far to young an age!!!
Going to try and make all 3, worked all day on the next two months schedules and whatnot. Got ALOT going on, and some deadlines for tomorrow night!
Lining up tribute races, and working on the schedule for the rest of June and July! July is going to be CRAZY busy for American Heroes Racing, and Empire Racing!!! Exciting things in the works, stay tuned!!!
Also I would like to announce this from our friends over at Michael Raskovic Racing:
Michael Raskovic Racing is honored to be a part of American Heroes Racing! We will be honoring Wisconsin’s Fallen American Heroes on our late model throughout the 2012 season.
Headed to Bangor to join the Patriot Guard Riders in escorting home Captain John “Jay” Brainard III of Newport, ME. Another mighty warrior called home far too soon! Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends!
Working out the schedule for June and into July. Escorting fallen American Hero Capt. Jay Brainard from Bangor to Newport with the Maine Patriot Guard tomorrow. Going to try and take the car to a few of the Maine Military memorials over the next few days too. Perhaps a stop at Cole’s Land Transportation Museum fits right in with that! WWII air show at the Bangor Aviation facility on Sunday. NC bound mid-week for a car show and event at Roush Yates, and Faith, Family, and Freedom at the Charlotte Dragway on the 23rd. Another huge military event the following weekend in SC.
All the while planning and working on upcoming tribute races and sponsorship packages.
Sean Corr was impressive as always today in Pocono at the ARCA event!!! We have been put in a box on the horsepower side of things by rules we have no control over, and he was out there running down cars with 30+ HP more than we had to offer. Ben made some great calls, and the Empire Racing team was pulling through and even pulling off stops like the garages on the other end of pit road could do!!! Sean had a serious shot at the top 5, and had EASILY a top 7 car ALL day!!! Impressive with what we had to work with in the rule department! Faulty equipment with 3 to go cost us about 5 spots, but Sean and the team kept their composure and brought home the #82 in one piece with no major problems!
It TRULY is an honor to work with such a GREAT team!!! We have accomplished more in the last 3 months than I ever dreamed, and I am so STOKED to see what’s next!!!
Phil, Sharon, and all of Joshua Klinger’s family were extremely happy with the program, and it was an honor to run LCPL Klinger’s photo on the hood and to host his family and friends at the track!!!
Sean, JC, Uncle John, JB, Grace, Aunt Cathy, and the WHOLE Empire crew… THANK YOU!!!
