It is my sad duty to inform you of the passing of another Vietnam Veteran. The family of Mr. Everett Dale Foreman has requested that the Patriot Guard Riders escort their hero to his final resting place at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton Ga. It will be our honor and privilege to do so. Mr. Foreman answered the call of his country and enlisted in the US Army. He rose to the rank of SP5-T (E5) His MOS was 73C20 Finance Specialist. He served with the 4th Infantry Division in Pleiku Vietnam when the unit first arrived in country. His awards included the National Defense Service Ribbon, Vietnam Service Ribbon, and the Vietnam Campaign Ribbon. This will be an escort mission from Darby Funeral Home in Canton to the Georgia National Cemetery. Once we have arrived at the Cemetery we will proceed to the assigned Shelter where we will stand a silent flag line while military honors are rendered by a US Army Honors Team.

  4. Post Mission report Everett Dale Foreman.
    On a beautiful sunny afternoon 17 Patriots gathered at Darby Funeral Home in Canton to escort Mr. Everett Dale Foreman to his final resting place at the Georgia National Cemetery. Before the escort began there a was a presentation to Mr. Foreman’s wife for his service in Vietnam. Jim Marshall carried the Flag and I carried his cremains to the Hearse where we rendered Honors called by David Lusk. We then escorted the family to the cemetery with the assistance of LEO as well as Dan and Tom. At the Cemetery we were joined by 4 others some of whom came from a previous service in Acworth. We stood a Silent Flag line while Military Honors were Rendered by the U S Army Honors team. I Presented Mrs. Foreman with a Condolence card signed by all present including the Army Honors team and an Angel coin.
    I would like to thank everyone that came out today to Honor this Hero. Special thanks to Olga for bringing flags and Hydration, Reuben , Dan and Knobby for keeping us safe on the road and Jim Marshall for calling the Final Salute. The Foreman family asked me to thank everyone for being there today. I am proud to call all of you my Brothers and Sisters.
