Please attend to honor this young man's service to our nation.September 29, 2020 at 8:41 pm #5573keithlongacreModerator
All missions are special BUT this one is extra special because of what happen to this young veteran. Shot & murdered just 8 days after being discharged. We don't know all the details but needless to say, we all grieve for & pray for the family
It was truly an honor for all of us to be a part of Jonathan's memorial. Along with several members of the Patriot Guard Riders there was also a large contingent of riders from the US VETERANS MC club who not only stood 2 flag lines & an escort but took the time to approach the casket to render honors at the end of the service. Many people don't understand what we riding patriots do, but it goes without saying, the families of these fallen heroes do.
Thanks to Flag Wrangler Don for the extra flags staged at the church & the cemetery. That really helps show everyone that a hero patriot is being honored. I am blessed to be a part of such a fine group of American Patriots. Thanks to everyone who attended.
