Confirmed mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the memorial service for Mr. Dorwin Alan French. Mr. French served in the US Navy and Naval Reserves from 1969 to 1973, including in Vietnam. He left the service as a Petty Officer Third Class.
We had a great gathering of 13 Patriots to stand in honor for Mr. Dorwin "Buddy" French yesterday in Bastrop, including first-time rider Dan Neischin riding in from Columbus, TX. It was literally standing-room-only at his memorial service with all the family & friends attending. Before our briefing, his sister walked over to our group and thanked us each personally for being there for him. Many thanks to Nicki, Soup, and Nicki's twin sister Vicki for wrangling the flags and the nice visual of all the extra ones out on the driveway. Thank you for your service Buddy and Godspeed.
