ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Patriot Guard Riders have the privilege of standing a silent and respectful flag line for Navy Veteran Irvin Fuerst.  We will then escort him to his final resting place. Mr. Fuerst served in the Navy during the Vietnam Era from 1963 to 1968.  He completed basic training, earning the rank of top of his basic training class and was then assigned to the USS Cone as an Engineer Man achieving the rank of EN3 (E-4).  Upon discharge from the Navy as a pipefitter, he worked for Hercules in Louisiana MO where he rose to the position of shift superintendent of his shift at the plant.  He was very talented with his hands in the field of pipefitting, carpentry, electrical and other areas. He loved hunting and developed into a superior marksman.  He was also an avid gun collector.
Following the service, we will escort this hero to the Keith Cemetery in New Hartford, MO.

  7. My wife and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of an American Hero. His service and sacrifice to our country to preserve our freedom is not and will not be forgotten. I wish him Fair Winds and Following Seas. Your mission here is completed. Rest in peace, we have the watch!

    Joseph “Mustang” Bilodeau
    LCDR USN (Ret)

    Sailors pray,
    for fair winds and a following sea
    The smell of salt in the air,
    the feel of their skin as it’s touched by the spray
    An albatross soaring above,
    dolphins in the ship’s wake at play
    To witness a work of art that only God can create,
    the sunset at the end of day
    At night a million stars in the sky,
    safe anchorage in an islands lee
    When the time comes to die as for all it must,
    to awake in Sailors Heaven where nothing ever rusts
    And always there would be,
    fair winds and a following sea
    By Charles D. Williams

  8. Please accept my condolences on your loss.

    We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of our veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

    Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest peacefully in the arms of God.

    Bruce Berg, ISC, USN (Ret)

  9. Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there.
    I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there,,I did not die
