Honor Mission
Shelton Lee “Butch” Bowen, Veteran
MULTI-CITY, Arkansas – 03-01-19


Another hero has fallen and the Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to show respect and honor for his service. Mr. Shelton Lee “Butch” Bowen joined the United States Navy in 1962 and served honorably for a little over 4 years. Petty Officer 3rd Class Bowen spent three of those years at sea on the USS Macdonough, a guided missile destroyer. In his civilian life, Mr. Bowen was a self-employed electronics engineer who owned and operated Arkansas Time Recorder, where he worked on employee time clocks, fire alarm systems, and school intercom systems. At the age of 8, Shelton had a near death experience, leading him to pen a book entitled “My Personal Angel Experience”. He was a deacon in his church and loved to sing in the choir. It will be an honor to stand for this hero.
