    Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in a memorial service for Major Harvey Harrell Storms, Jr. Major Storms was living in Cameron, TX when he entered the US Army and served in WWII. He later re-enlisted and volunteered to go to Korea. He went MIA in December 1950 during the battle of Chosin Reservoir and was presumed KIA two years later.

    On July 29, 2019 through DNA testing some of his remains were positively identified in a mass grave where remains of Americans, Korean, and Chinese were found mixed together. A funeral service is planned for next summer at Arlington National Cemetery when the rest of Major Storms remains are brought back from Hawaii.
