On Saturday, The Patriots, God & Country Tour came through Stephenville. The tour had their patriotic vehicles parked in the Stephenville City Park for area residents to come and view them. They were quite a sight to behold. At the time that The Flash was there, there were two motorcycle groups there as well and they were showing their pride for their country as well. One of the motorcycle groups had ridden up to Stephenville from Houston. They were a group of firefighters that also obviously enjoy riding their cycles as well. One of the gentlemen that was on the tour crew was removing parts from one of the fire trucks to donate to firefighters because he said that on their “display” truck the equipment would never get actually used and he wanted the equipment to go to where it could be put to good use. Here is a little bit of information on the tour from the group’s website and you can go to their website at patriotsgodandcountry.com to learn more. The tour will be led by 7 fire trucks and support vehicles, symbols of some of our nation’s bravest men and women. Each vehicle is wrapped in a theme that reminds us of the gifts and freedoms God has bestowed upon our nation. Each vehicle will be driven by a retired firefighter, veteran or police officer who is volunteering their time. The themes include our flag as a symbol of our unity and blessings, our nation’s powerful military, our courageous and dependable law-enforcement, the past heroes of our nation, the right to protect ourselves via the second amendment, and a truck that honors God. The tour began on September 29 and comes to an end on November 3. The current plan is to hold rallies in 28 cities and stop in or pass through 22 states.
