    SFC Glenn D. Bean, US Army, Retired, Vietnam Veteran, Nolanville, TX

    Smiley of the Freedom Riders MC has requested the presence and participation of the Patriot Guard Riders in the Funeral Service and Interment of his Father, Sergeant First Class Glenn D. Bean.

    Glenn enlisted in the Army in 1956, serving in Vietnam with four of his brothers. Glenn was especially proud of his career as a Mess Sergeant. After retiring in 1976, Glenn went to work in the Water Department for the City of Killeen, working his way to the Head of that department. When his wife became ill, he retired, only to return that same year, this time as an Inspector in Underground Utilities. He continued to work until esophageal cancer forced him to retire in 2002 with a total of 24 years with the City of Killeen.
