» From "THANKSGIVING CONTEST: GIVING THANKS THROUGH THE SONGS OF SKYNYRD " // December 03, 2010 3:10:14 AM UTC
“Red White & Blue” reminds me of what I am thankful for this holiday season. In 2004, my uncle Bob Wooldridge passed away and left me his 1986 FLHTC Harley Davison. Since his death, I have completely rebuilt the motorcycle in honor of our Troops and Veterans. I am very thankful for “our Troops and their families”. I use my motorcycle to lead the funerals and welcome homes for our brave Troops and Veterans. In the song “Red White & Blue” you mention that you ride your own bikes to Sturgis, my tribute bike is over 24 years old and has over 182,000 miles on it (she ain’t no trailer queen!). Nothing touches my heart more than to see one of my children walk up and shake the hand of a Soldier or Veteran and say, “Thank you for what you have done for our country”… “Guess you can say, we’ve always been, Red White & Blue”. Although we sometimes encounter protesters at the funerals of our Heroes, that just motivates me to keep doing what I’m doing. “If they don’t like it, they can just GET THE HELL OUT!”.
What I did during the Thanksgiving week was to lead the procession for a fallen Soldier by the name of Spc. Nathan Lillard of the United States Army. R.I.P Spc. Nathan Lillard.
As far as what to do with those Thanksgiving leftovers, heat them up and invite over a friend or two that you haven’t seen in a while (remember, we are not guaranteed tomorrow).
Rest Easy Skynyrd Nation, the bravest Men and Women in the world are protecting you tonight.
Very Proud American,
Tod ‘Weirdo’ Wooldridge
