Dwayne Melvin Edwards Comment

  1. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** On Saturday May 30, 2020 the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Mr. Dwayne Melvin Edwards, United States Army, as we Stood Tall and Silent during his funeral, rode with him one last time and stood again at his committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family at the funeral service.

    A very special thanks to Terry who provided the flags and water; to Laura and Mark, who so tirelessly gets our Missions out to the Riders; Dan for getting the Missions posting on the National website and as always, to those who so willingly give of themselves and are found standing in the Flag Line.

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

    Tom Hardin
    Ride Captain
