Confirmed Mission: The family of James Ray Cook has requested the Patriot Guard Riders participation in his funeral service. Mr. Cook served in the US Marine Corps July 1972 to February 1974. He left the corps as a lance corporal. His family reports he was a big fan of the PGR.
With the parking lot nearly full, 12 PGR stood the flag line, with one at the drive entrance. With great emotion & tears, Mr Cook’s wife & children took the time to walk the flag line to thank each of us & tell us how much it meant that we were doing what we were doing. Don staged flags so that it gave a much bigger flag line appearance.
Thank U all for the giving of your time & service. It truly does make a difference.
Semper Fi Marine, Guard the gates well.
