Please make plans to attend to honor this veteran for his service to our country.May 29, 2013 at 11:19 pm #4108
As if y'all ever thought we don't make a difference, today was a perfect example. 11 PGR attended Petty Officer Second Class Morbah's service today. We more than doubled the amount of family and friends that were there.
Those in the family repeatedly came out to thank us before the service, and the daughter told us stories about her Dad having gotten his Shellback.
That 11 strangers took time from their day to attend really moved the family and friends.
Thanks to all who were able to make it.June 5, 2013 at 11:06 pm #4124
Andy and staff;
This msg came in today and Brian wanted all to see it:
I just wanted to THANK all the Patriot Guard Services’ members that attended the funeral for Lee Mordah on May 29th. The family really appreciates the time you took out of your lives to pay tribute to a veteran. It is a great service you provide and as you could tell, there were as many of you there as there were guests attending the funeral. I know Lee Mordah would have been very proud to know you were there. He also loved motorcycles so it was a great fit.
Anyway, THANK YOU again!!
