"What's In A Name"Many times I've been ask how Patriot got his name....was he named for the Boston Patriots football team, is usually the first question I'm ask.
No...I tell them, Patriot was named for a returning Iraqi war veteran, a real live hero...a Patriot!
Michael Jernigan & his guide dog Brittani
Michael's mother named Patriot in honor of her son.
Patriot and I had the pleasure of meeting Michael this past year, when he was the guest speaker for The Villages Walkathon Kick Off event. What a motivational speaker he is!!!
