                         WARRIORS' WATCH RIDERS

  (Mr. McNERNEY asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute.)
  Mr. McNERNEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to ask my colleagues to join 
me in recognizing the contributions of the Warriors' Watch Riders, a 
troop support group, for their commitment to our veterans, their 
families and our community.
  Rain or shine, the Warriors' Watch Riders in my district provide a 
motorcycle escort to our servicemembers and welcome them home as they 
return to our community.
  When one of our servicemembers makes the ultimate sacrifice in the 
line of duty, the Warriors' Watch Riders recognize their sacrifice, 
honor their memory, and offer support to their families.
  I have seen firsthand how the Warriors' Watch Riders bring 
communities together with the roar of their motorcycles. Bonds are 
built, tears are shed, and families, friends, and neighbors come 
together with the Warriors' Watch Riders to show respect for the 
sacrifices those in uniform make to ensure our freedom.
  I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing the Warriors' Watch 
Riders for all they do for the men and women who serve our country.
