Phoenix, Arizona – 02-14-19

ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Family of Roger C. Wade, Sr. has requested the Patriot Guard Riders provide a Pony Express Escort from Phoenix, Arizona to Ontario, California. Roger served his country proudly in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman from 1951 to 1955, during the Korean War. Roger received the National Defense Service Medal. Roger’s service didn’t stop with his Honorable Discharge. He was very involved with many veteran programs, including a 30 year member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge 2570 and 1419, and most recently as a Member In Good Standing with the Fountain Hills Elks Lodge. Roger, epitomizing “Service Over Self”, will have a Celebration of Life on Saturday, February 16, 2019 in Ontario, California, at which the Patriot Guard Riders will stand a flag line.
*PLEASE NOTE* This escort will travel approx. 250 miles to Chiriaco Summit, CA.
Contact RC for specifics on this if needed. Riders welcome, however, large honor flags will NOT be flown due to speed and distance.
