    AFTER ACTION REPORT: PV2 Gregory Morales, US Army (Active Duty) GWOT Veteran, Sapulpa, OK

    Thursday, 30 July 2020 started as a rainy morning, ending hot and humid. The PGR staged and began briefing at First Baptist Church to flags that had been posted across the front of the church and around the side entrance. During the briefing the coach arrived with PV2 Morales, the PGR helped move him from the coach into the church and assisted with the flowers. Continuing the briefing with the aspects of todays mission including the accompaniment to Fort Gibson National Cemetery. As family, friends and numerous media began arriving, the PGR manned the front and side doors with a Flag Line across the front of the church. When the family was seated and the service started the PGR began to prepare for the accompaniment to Fort Gibson. All flags were left in place and retrieved at a later time. At the conclusion of the service the PGR formed a Resect Line as PV2 Morales was moved from the church to the coach. There was a slight delay before the accompaniment began. Upon the arrival of the Sapulpa Police Department, the PGR surrounded the coach and the escort out of Sapulpa began. When we entered the Creek Turnpike we continued on our own across South Tulsa to Fort Gibson where we were met by the Fort Gibson Police Department and escorted to the entrance of the National Cemetery. The coach with PV2 Morales was met by the US Army Honor Guard. The PGR formed a Respect Line as PV2 Morales was moved from the coach to the Interment Shelter. When all were in place the Honor Guard played taps, folded and presented the flag to Mrs. Morales, a second flag was presented to Mrs. Wedel (Gregory’s Mom), a three round volley was fired by a VFW Honor Guard. The VFW made presentations to the family followed by the PGR coming forward and presenting a PGR plaque and Invocation Letter to wife and mom. A Final Salute was given, that was participated by all in attendance. The pastor closed the service with a prayer. The PGR was dismissed. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the staff at FGNC put up the PGR flags each day and take them down every evening.

    Thank you, to the Morales and Wedel families for inviting the PGR to be a part of this service honoring this active duty, GWOT Veteran. Thank you to the Sapulpa Police Department and Fort Gibson Police Department for the excellent job in safely escorting us thru their areas to the cemetery. Thank you to the many PGR riders who took time out of their day to “Stand and Honor” this Hero.

    “Rest in Peace” PV2 Gregory Wedel Morales, US Army GWOT Veteran, your mission is complete, you are gone, but your service to this Great Nation will never be forgotten.
