    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    The US Marine Corps and the family of PFC George B. Murray have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to meet the arrival of this Hero as he comes home to his family after 73 years, we will be honored to do so.

    George Bernard Murray, of Oceano, CA, enlisted in the US Marine Corps on February 22, 1943, on November 20, 1943 he was killed in combat on the beach on Japanese held island of Betio in theTarawa Atoll, he was killed during the first day of an intense 4 day battle that claimed the lives of over 800 US Marines. He was serving as part of the 2nd Marine Regiment. His remains were not recovered at that time and he was pronounced Missing in Action. Through the ongoing efforts of the US Government his remains have now been identified through DNA comparison from family members. He will now come home to be buried receiving the honor he deserves for giving his life for our freedom, and giving his family some closure after all these years.

    His immediate family has passed on, father Burnett aka "Boots, mother Edith, and sister Thelma Murray, all 3 served in the USMC. He has 10 surviving family members.

    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.

    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.
