    KSU 1400 Sharp

    Service with full military honors at 1500 at Albert G. Horton Jr Memorial Veterans Cemetary

    Flag mounts will be inspected at the brief. Inspection does not constitute approval. Each rider is responsible for their own mount.

    Please monitor the weather and choose your transportation appropriately.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Safety is of our utmost priority. Every effort possible is made in planning and executing the PGR MISSION Statement in a manner that minimizes the inherit dangers of riding a motorcycle, including riding in groups of all sizes and any situation. While the PGR and its riders have a remarkable safety record in the execution of our missions, infrequently members have been injured in unforeseen accidents. In an effort to mitigate the risk of preventable accidents, all attendees who wish to ride in a Patriot Guard motorcycle escort or Honor Mission are asked to attend the pre-mission briefing. It will include a safety briefing and any unique ride information known to our Ride Captain(s) that may be specific to the mission. Member safety and well- being is always a principal ongoing concern. Our Ride Captains are asked to stand down from any mission that cannot be accomplished in relative safety or unreasonable risk. This includes both rides and flag lines in inclement weather and other conditions. It remains each individual PGR member's responsibility to ride within their own comfort zone and be cognizant of their surroundings and skill limitations as well as any physical needs or limitations. If the ride and/or mission conditions present challenges beyond your skill, comfort, or needs, you are expected to exercise good judgment in foregoing any planned participation.

    Flags & Water:
    Flags Will Be Provided.
    If you have large bike flags, please bring them.
    Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    There is discipline In a soldier you can see it when he walks
    There is honor in a soldier you can hear it when he talks
    There is courage in a soldier you can see it in his eyes.
    There is loyalty in a soldier that he will not compromise.
    There is something in a soldier that makes him stand apart
    There is strength in a soldier that beats in his heart.
    A soldier is not a title any man can be hired to do.
    A soldier is the sole of that man buried deep inside.
    A soldier is always a soldier even when he sleeps.
    It is that oath he took that he forever keeps.

    Today we lay to rest another hero. A hero for serving his country and a hero for everything he stood for. May you rest in peace for your mission is now complete. I salute you.

    I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends for your loss of another American Hero
