William Oliver McNeely Comment

  1. ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Chief Petty Officer William Oliver McNeely, United States Coast Guard World War II, Korea War and Vietnam War Veteran 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 funeral service.

    A very special thanks to Mario who provided the flags and water; Perry for folding the casket flag; 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 Chief McNeely’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
