ABOUT THE MISSION:
The family of Vietnam Veteran Galen Frances Morris, 73, United States Army, has requested the Patriot Guard Riders provide a Flag Line at his funeral service on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m., an escort to the cemetery (weather permitting) and a Flag Line during the graveside service. Our Hero Galen Morris was inducted into the U.S. Army in 1966, serving his Country for two years active duty, and as a reservist for four years. He declined Officer Candidate training, but did become an instructor. In October, 1967, his orders sent him to Vietnam with the 1st Infantry Division, Ready & Reactionary Force, engaging in the TET Offensive. He was honorably discharged, receiving the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with 4 Bronze stars, and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. Galen was honored to be chosen for the first Dawson County Hero Flight to Washington, DC in 2016. He was also given a Quilt of Valor that same year at this 50th class reunion. He cherished the responsibility of putting flags at military graves in Greenwood Cemetery, and the solemn duty of flag folding and presentation to families of veteran’s at their grave site.
