Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the interment service for Major Dana Edgar Young, Jr. Major Young served in the US Air Force for 24 years, with duty stations around the world, including Vietnam.
Every mission is special and some stand out. This was one of those. 9 patriots gathered to stand in the high wind & cold. The family, especially the Major's wife, went out of their way to thank us & tell us about their veteran. We thanked her for inviting us to share their special day. Anytime we get to show honor & respect to a fallen veteran & his family, it is special for us. Thank you for giving us that privilege.
I want to welcome new PGR rider Gregg & his BMW. Good looking ride. Soup filled in for Nicki with bringing the flags & helping to stake 5 in front of the Chapel. We formed a flag line there first then moved it to the interment site.
Thanks to all for your dedication & patriotism.
