Deanna K. Richards Bridge Dedication
Ashland, Massachusetts – 09-18-21


The Patriot Guard Riders will escort Deanna’s family and be present for a bridge dedication to honor the memory of USAF Senior Airman Deanna K. Richards Senior Airman Deanna Kelsey Richards was 26 years old when on January, 2017 she collapsed and died unexpectedly while training with the 27th Special Operations Civil Engineer Squadron at Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, NM. She worked as an operations management journeyman at the Special Operations Civil Engineer Squadron. Deanna was a graduate of Ashland High School Class of 2008 and Suffolk University Class of 2012. Upon graduating, she enlisted in the US Air Force. The Patriot Guard Riders had been requested for her funeral in 2017 but had to respectfully decline because of a mission conflict. Further, this bridge dedication, originally planned for March of 2020, had to be postponed due to covid-19 concerns.
Now, finally, we now have the opportunity to give Senior Airman Richards her proper due.
