Florida Chapter 2
Sons of AMVETS
Walter "JR" Gilbert lost his long fought battle with cancer on December 23, 2020. He was a Charter Member and Past Commander of Sons of AMVETS Squadron 2. He was also a Charter Member of FL AMVETS Riders Chapter 2. The fight is over, the pain is gone. Rest in Peace JR.
The AMVETS Riders would like to honor all those faithful Riders who have passed from this life to the next. Their voices and the the roar of their motorcycles have been stilled, but their names and faces are indelibly etched in our hearts and minds. Their passing has left a void that will never be filled, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to serve and ride alongside them. We were blessed to know them, and we pray that God will bless us to be reunited when it is our time to take the final ride. Now as they ride forever free across the heavens, these AMVETS Riders are part of an eternal fellowship,
