Missing In America Project Comment

  1. Ride report: MIAP mission

    It was a cold wet morning but many PGR on 10 motorcycles and some cages assembled at Roswell Funeral Home for this mission. I held the briefing, we said the pledge and Nathaniel Long led us in prayer. John Newport (MIAP Coordinator) held a briefing and 6 PGR and one American Legion member volunteered to carry flags during the transfer to the hearse. Seven American Legion members volunteered to carry the urns during the transfer. When the transfer was conducted, the remaining PGR rendered honors. We mounted up and escorted the seven WWII veterans to Georgia National Cemetery CGNC) for the service there.

    We had more Law Enforcement Officers than I was able to count that led the procession with motorcycles, cars, and trucks. People lined up on highway 92 to honor these veterans. Overpasses on I-575 had people showing honor and respect. Many, many vehicles stopped on the opposite side of I-575 to show respect. The street in Canton had many people waving flags and honoring our heroes. Fire trucks, some with raised ladders and at least two with large USA flags displayed, were along the route.

    When we arrived at GNC, we were met by more PGR and quickly set a flag line at the assembly area. There were many people there to send these men off to their final rest with honor, dignity and respect.

    The guest speaker was a state senator, and the MIAP chaplain also spoke. John Newport emceed the service. Marine Corps League #1311 ceremonial rifle team fired the three-volley salute, Army honors folded three flags for the Army, Army Air Corps, and Navy. Army honors presented two flags and Navy honors present the third flag to our own Gold Star mother, Jan Johnson. The Marines presented a certificate and 3 spent shells to Jan. Jan also received an American Legion Riders certificate for each of the veterans.

    There was a flyover near the end of the service by a group from Rome, GA. The urns are placed in the columbarium and these veterans have made it to their final resting place.

    Thank you to Buffalo Bill for organizing the GNC portion of the mission. Thank you to Bill and Cowboy for flags. Thank you to the 6 PGR for volunteering to carry the flags. Thank you to Reuben and Sarge Sibley for escort duty. Also thank you to those who bracketed the two hearses. The mission was a huge success because everyone participated willingly and did your best. I thank you for making me look good.
