Rudy Esparza Comment

  1. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Rodolfo Esparza, United States Marine Corps, as we Stood Tall and Silent during his funeral, rode with him one last time and stood again at his committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family at the visitation.

    A very special thanks to Bill, for covering at the Cemetery; Eli who provided the flags, snacks and water; to Laura, who so tirelessly gets our Missions out to the Riders; Dan for getting the Missions posting on the National website and as always, to Mike, who 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 and all of Rudy’s family and friends, thank you for allowing the Patriot Guard Riders to stand today in honor of this American Veteran. May God comfort you in your loss.
