Honor Mission

ABOUT THE MISSION:

The family of LT CDR Raymond Francis Curry (100) (a member of the Greatest Generation) requested the Patriot Guard Riders to escort the family from staging to St Joseph Cemetery, and stand a flag line during his interment. LT CDR Curry joined the Navy in 1942 and was commissioned in 1944, later earning his Wings after completing flight training in Pensacola, FL. During his Naval career, he served in many interesting assignments and leadership roles including Executive Officer of Aviation Shore Activity, as Officer in Charge of the Navy’s Gunfire Support Training Unit in Roosevelt Roads, PR, and as chief pilot on a USN National Geographic Society expedition researching sea turtles in the Caribbean. Ray’s incredible career as a Navy pilot included recognition as one of the Navy’s last “lighter than air” or blimp (LTA) pilots, as an instructor at the United States Naval Academy, serving as a plane commander in the Navy’s Airborne Early Warning Squadron, better known as the “Hurricane Hunters,” predecessor to today’s NOAA squadron, and flying seaplanes in air-sea rescue. He retired from the Navy in 1964. His awards include; WWII Victory Medal, National Defense Service Medal, American Campaign Medal. European-African- Middle Eastern, and Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medals, and Korean Service Medal. Please join us as we honor this Great American Hero.
