Coverage of our mission by the Norristown Times Herald:
Some photos and videos of the welcome home by ” Bikerider” can be found at:
We have received a request from Denise Bergen, a proud Army Mom of Michael James Bergen, asking if we could welcome her son home and escort him to a party in his honor.
Mike was born in 1988 in Norristown, Pa. He loves sports! Football, basketball and hockey. A fan of all the Philadelphia teams! He played inline roller hockey for several years into his teens. He played junior high and high school basketball and football. He has an interest in cars also. Michael went to Kennedy-Kenrick Catholic High School in Norristown and graduated in 2006. He went to automotive school as well as a year at Community College. He is our first born child and has two Sisters, Jenna and Alyssa. Michael began his training in the Army in August 2013. He is stationed in Hawaii and is currently in NTC @ Fort Irwin, CA., desert training. He has earned his Master Sharp Shooter and his certificate and license to drive a striker vehicle. He is Infantry training and has possible deployment in October.
Mom says, “my thought for the Warrior Watch Riders is to come to my Condo in East Norriton, Pa. for a “surprise” visit , then escort him to a sports bar about 2 miles from my home. I am planning to have family and friends both at home and waiting for us at the bar. He will be home Sunday, June 8th . I am hoping we could surprise him around 4:30pm.
Please let me know what you think “.
Well, Mom, we will do our best to let Mike know we appreciate his service to our Country and we’ll give him an afternoon he won’t soon forget!!!
