To the family of PFC Joel A. Ramirez. I am a motorcycle rider in Illinois and today I rode with Pride in the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run. And I had the honor and privilege of riding with Joel. Each rider is given a name tag of a fallen solider, and we ride to Marseilles, IL to the Middle East Conflict Memorial Wall where each and every solider's name is inscribed on the wall. While out to, I bowed my head has his name was called and added to the wall. I thank you, and Joel for your sacrifice. Please know that Joel is not forgotten. If any member of his family wishes to contact me, please do. I would be more than happy to make a trip back down to the wall to get a rubbing of his name to send to you, along with his dog tag. If you choose not to, that is fine. I have the dog tags of all the soliders I have ridden for on my bike. They ride with me and Freedom (my patriotic stuffed dog) whenever we take the bike out. God Bless you all.
