  1. MISSION COMPLETE, SGT Kenneth Earl Walker, USA KIA Korea, Madill, Oklahoma
    I would like to thank all those who made the mission today to honor SGT Kenneth Earl Walker, USA KIA Korea, Madill, Oklahoma
    We had 11 bikes/trikes and 2 cages with 15 PGR members present to honor Sgt Walker.
    With family visitation taking place during the day prior to the mission. Early morning Madill Ride Captain Smitty staked flags around the Funeral Home for the visitation. We later pre staked flags at the cemetery. We than returned to the funeral home for our staging. After the briefing with PGR members as pall barriers we stood an honor line as they moved Sgt Walker from the funeral home to the coach.
    With the Madill fire dept. and Police dept. leading we accompanied Sgt Walker to Woodberry Forest Cemetery for graveside services. We stood an honor line as they moved Sgt Walker from the coach to the gravesite. We than manned flags for the service.
    At the conclusion of the service the Chickasaw Honor guard did a 3 volley gun salute after which the Army Honor played Taps, folded and presented the flag to Sgt Walker’s niece. The PGR plaque and Invocation was than presented to Sgt Walker’s niece.
    A special thank you to SGT Kenneth Earl Walker for your service to our country and dedication to protecting our freedoms. You will not be forgotten.
