Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the funeral service for TSgt Donald Louis Heckman. Sgt Heckman enlisted in the US Air Force after high school, serving 20 years. He was a Tactical Maintenance Specialist.
On a refreshingly cool morning, 8 members stood proudly for Mr. Heckman & his wife & family. In speaking with Mr. Ramsey of the FH, he related how the wife personally requested the PGR far ahead of time. Mrs. Hechman, it was our total honor to stand for your husband. Thank you for allowing us to be with all of you today.
Keith Longacre, Ride Captain of the Austin Area PGR.
