Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the funeral service for Juan Jacinto Benavides. Mr. Benavides entered the USAF upon graduation from high school in 1969. He served a deployment to Vietnam and many other duty stations over his 20 year USAF career.
6 Patriot Guard members attended the flag line for Mr. Benavides. The RC, even though he has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and advanced mathematics does not know how to compute time and distance so he was very late to the church. The riders that were there stood in a honor line until the RC arrived with the flags minutes before Mr. Benavides’ casket was removed from the hearse. Thanks to the guys that showed the true spirit of the PGR.
