Ride Report posted for Lisa Moran

What a beautiful day for an escort.  The sun was shining and not a cloud in the sky.  Robert was greated at the gate at O’Hare by his mom and step dad along with the USO.

Mom called me to let me know they were heading out to meet us for Robert’s surprise welcome home.

When they arrived we had 2 police cars, about 10 bikes and several cages.  Hugs and handshakes and we were off to give Robert an escort he will never forget.  I have to admit, it was one of the coolest escorts I myself have been in thanks to our wonderful LEO and FD.

We hit the road and started with one LEO in front and one in the back.  It was a seemless handoff all the way, thank you to Lake Zurich, Kildeer, Deer Park, Wauconda, Lakemoor, City of McHenry, McHenry County, Il. State, Lake County, and Wonder Lake as well as Wonder Lake FD. All I can say is WOW!!!  A special thank you to Chief Mahlke for meeting up with me today and hanging a welcome home banner at the parents home. Not only did Chief Mahlke contact the WWR to set up this welcome home, he is our newest member!

We had LEO all the way and they led us on quite as escort, stopping all traffic at times as we escorted our Hero home home for some much deserved R&R.

Thank you Micki allowing us to escort your son home and thank you Robert for all you do.  We support you and will be here when you return in 6 months.
