ABOUT THE MISSION:
The Patriot Guard Riders have the honor of participating in a drive-by 98th birthday celebration for a US Army Veteran of WWII, Mr. Luciano “Louis” Charles Graziano. In January 1943, twenty-year-old Louis Graziano received a letter from Uncle Sam ordering him to report to Fort Niagara, New York, for a physical. Louis landed in the third wave on D-day on Omaha Beach and later participated in the Battle of the Bulge. He is the last living veteran to have witnessed the historic surrender in France on 7 May 1945.

Restroom facilities may not be open at the park but we should be there for less than 30 minutes. After a safety briefing, we will proceed approximately 2.5 miles to Mr. Grazoiano’s neighborhood to ride by his house. We hope to have the opportunity to briefly stop and wish him a happy birthday in person.
