Mr. Mark Campbell was a lot of things; he was a truck driver, a father, a grandfather, a son, a fiance, and a best friend. He was also a Veteran. He served his country in the United States Army for 6 years. He served during a time of peace from 1980 – 1987 at Ft. Jackson, SC and Ft. Hood, TX as a Heavy Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic and a Truck Driver. He swore an oath to protect his country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, but was never called. He was ready, if needed, now we stand ready for him – to honor his service in the uniform of our country.

After the military, Mark drove a truck for 32 years hauling freight across this great country of ours.

Mr. Campbell’s family said he also deeply admired the PGR and all that the PGR stands for. His best friend is our long-time PGR brother and caboose driver, Duffy Spies. The family and his best friend wants us there on Monday to stand for him for his memorial service; to honor him for being ready for us, if called.


MISSION DETAILS: MONDAY, 29 DEC 14

This is a flag line only mission for a memorial service to be held at The House of Faith at 141 New Cassell Drive, Gaston, SC. The memorial will start at 1600 (4:00 pm).

STAGING LOCATION: Fish Hatchery Food Mart, 3104 Fish Hatchery Road, Gaston, SC 29054 MAP: https://goo.gl/maps/GqjVj

STAGING TIME: 1450 (2:50 pm)

BRIEFING: 1500 (3:00 pm)

KSU at 1510 (3:10 pm).

We will travel the very short distance to Cassell Drive to the church and establish the flag line upon arrival (3:15) and hold it in place until the service starts.

NOTE: Cassell Drive is a hard packed, graded dirt road. At staging, we will assess the condition of the road (based upon recent weather) and take appropriate action. If road conditions do not allow safe 2-wheel travel, or anyone is unsure about riding on dirt, we will shuttle the short distance to the church in cars/trucks, but we will be there for the Campbell family. Feel free to drive cars/trucks based upon forecasted weather, if needed, for safety.
