Dell Coleman-Gray Comment

  1. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of SSgt. Dell L. Coleman-Gray, United States Air Force, as we Stood Tall and Silent during her funeral, rode with her one last time, folded and presented the casket flag to her son and stood again at her committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family during the funeral service.

    A very special thanks to Jeff for folding the casket flag; Mario who provided the flags and water; to Laura, who so tirelessly gets our Missions out to the Riders; Dan for getting the Missions posting on the National website and as always, to Diane, who took the photographs showing this family the true face of the Patriot Guard Riders, those who so willingly give of themselves and are found standing in the Flag Line.

    To all of Dell’s family and friends, thank you for allowing the Patriot Guard Riders to stand today in honor of this American Hero. May God comfort you in your loss.

    Ride Captain
