Honors at Arlington is a photo-documentary of an incredible 10 day journey on motorcycles across the United States; a massive undertaking to bury three forgotten war heros at Arlington National Cemetery. The remains of thousands of vets are sitting on the shelves of funeral homes across the country, often for years without the funds or the resources to pay them their due respect. Often they lie forgotten with no family left to claim them. The Missing in America Project finds these vets and seeks to honor them with the burials they deserve and escorts them to their final resting place with dignity.

Eric & Larissa,

That was the most fulfilling and challenging escort that my husband (fiance' at the time) and I have ever done.

From the Nevada/Utah State Line through to Colorado was nothing less than emotional. But when the pouring rain came and wouldn't let up for both of those days and all I could see was the tail lights of the bikes in front of me and was I ESPECIALLY grateful I could see my husband's, I couldn't complain...our Heroes have seen worse than what we were riding through.

Yes, we were a little cold, we were a little wet; THEY HAD BEEN FORGOTTEN FOR DECADES.

Then being able to present the flag that was flown for Isaiah Mays to the Buffalo Soldiers in Colorado knowing it was going to accompany him the rest of the way Arlington was more than than I could handle.

Those are the memories that still bring a tear to my eye. Thank you for bringing them to print and sharing them with the rest of the world. MIAP and POW/MIA Awareness Organization needs to continue until they all come home.

Larissa and Eric,
As just one rider and a very small part of this grand effort to escort these veterans, I want to thank you both for the outstanding book! I was fortunate to see the first draft and cannot wait until I have my own copy. I did not get to meet you but your presence and contribution to this project did not go unnoticed. Thank you for all you have done to support the MIAP and our veterans.

Eric & Larissa,
There are not enough words to thank you both for this terrific book. I didn't even make it past the first 15 pages posted before I was wanting to see it all. Having reviewed the first draft and approving of all that you have accomplished, I hope that you have included the work you and Eric did as our "Combat Medics" for this trip. Your aid and assistance to 5 people in medical crisis was exemplary. I hope that you added that to the final copy. It is a wonderful photo documentary of a very moving and spiritual event for all of us that participated.
