Confirmed Mission: The family of Mr. Byron Allen Sage has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to participate in his funeral service. Mr. Sage served in the US Navy as a submariner from 1966-1970. He left the service as a QM2(SS) (E-5).
Six patriots showed up for this short notice service honoring QM2 Byron Sage. It was a beautiful sunny day in a gorgeous setting at the Life Austin Church campus. Nicki arrived early and posted flags at the campus entrance on Hwy 71. We had one first time rider, David from north Austin. Mr. Sages’ son and one other family member made a special effort prior to the service to personally thank us us for being there. There was a good turnout of friends and family and almost every one who passed down the flag line expressed sincere gratitude for our presence.
RIP QM2 Sage.
R.S. (Soup) Campbell, Ride Captain
