The text of Congressman McNerney’s remarks is below.
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing the contributions of the Warriors’ Watch Riders – a troop support group – for their commitment to our veterans, their families and our community.
“Rain or shine, the Warriors’ Watch Riders in my district provide a motorcycle escort to our service members and welcome them home as they return back to our community.
“When one of our service members makes the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, the Warriors’ Watch Riders recognize their sacrifice, honor their memory and offer support to their families.
“I have seen firsthand how the Warriors’ Watch riders bring communities together with the roar of their motorcycles. Bonds are built, tears are shed and families, friends and neighbors come together with the Warriors’ Watch Riders to show respect for the sacrifices those in uniform make to ensure our freedom.
“I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing the Warriors’ Watch Riders for all they do for the men and women who serve our country.”
