    Confirmed San Antonio Mission
    Captain Mark “Tyler” Voss, USAF KIA

    The Patriot Guard has been invited by the family to stand and honor Captain Mark “Tyler” Voss (Air Force KIA) for funeral services and military honors on Friday (May 17) at St. John Lutheran Church in Boerne, at 4:00pm. Cpt. Voss died near Chon-Aryk, Kyrgyzstan, in the crash of a KC-135 aircraft, while assigned to the 93rd Air Refueling Squadron, Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington. The Patriot Guard will stand a flag line prior to the funeral service, then form again for full military honors to be held outside the church immediately following the funeral service. If available, please try to attend to honor one of our Fallen Heroes and help support the family during their loss. Thank you.

    I just wanted to tell you how proud I am to be a member of the PGR. Wayne Voss, Tylers dad is my first cousin. We were all at the Memorial/Funeral Service today, and as usual, y'all did an outstanding job. Tylers' family wanted me to pass it on to you just how thankful they are for your presence at the Funeral and also for doing everything that you do to stand for our fallen servicemen and their famlies. I haven't ridden a mission in the San Antonio area in a few years, but y'all continue to do it right. Thanks again, and just know that your presence for Tyler Voss and his family will never be forgotten. Ride Safe and God Bless!
