Letter: Thanks for supporting Nation of Patriots

Every year Nation of Patriots organizes a national effort that pays tribute to, and honors, all of America’s Armed Forces – Past, Present, and Fallen. The Nation of Patriots is a volunteer group and all of the funds raised are used to provide financial support to combat wounded veterans and their families.

Lynn and I took over over the lead position for the 2017 Nation of Patriots Tour with the assistance of the Albert Lea Harley Owners Group chapter. This was a daunting undertaking to say the least. The event took place May 31 with receiving the flag and then escorting the flag to Crow River Harley Davidson in Delano, Minnesota, the next day. Words can’t express how impressed we were with the communities’ involvement, dedication and support for this event.

Our Nation of Patriots Tours success can only be attributed to individuals and service organizations like yourselves. We are truly humbled and very grateful for your participation. Our combat wounded veterans and their families thank you! You have touched their lives forever!

Thank you so much for being a major part of a very successful and touching 2017 Nation of Patriots Tour.

God Bless you all and God Bless America!

William (Bill) Koza and Lynn Koza,

Nation of Patriots
