Randall N. Jones Comment

  1. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Randall Norris Jones, United States Army, Vietnam Veteran, as we Stood Tall and Silent during his committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family prior to the funeral service.

    The procession to the Committal Shelter was led by Jeff, Mark, Chris and John serving as honor bikes. A very special thanks to Laura, who so tirelessly gets our Missions out to the Riders; to Dan for posting them on the National website; to Mike and Jeff safely getting us to the Cemetery; to Randy and Nicki for providing the flags, snacks and water and as always; to Nicki, who did double duty and took the photographs, showing this family the true face of the Patriot Guard Riders, those who so willingly give of themselves and are found standing in the Flag Line.

    To JoAnn, and all of Randy’s family and friends, thank you for allowing the Patriot Guard Riders to stand today in honor of this American Hero. May God comfort you in your loss.

    Rick Crabb
    Ride Captain
