Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Hero for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.




    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.

    Mission Complete: 26 Aug. 2017 - LTC Grover C. Peters, Jr. USA (Ret) Vietnam Veteran, Purcell, Oklahoma.

    On Saturday, 26 August, 2017 there were 14 Patriot Guard Riders on 12 bikes that attended the mission to honor the military service of USA Retired Vietnam Veteran LTC Grover C. Peters, Jr. Services were held at Wilson-Little Funeral Home Chapel in Purcell, Oklahoma. The area in front of the Funeral Home was staked, and the American Flags flew proudly in a light breeze as family and friends arrived.

    A briefing was held, followed by a moment of silence for the Blue, Silver, & Gold Star families, POWs and MIAs. At the conclusion of the briefing a prayer was said asking comfort for the grieving family, a safe mission and protection for our military personnel engaged in the Global War on Terror.

    Following the briefing the PGR stood the Flag Line and manned the doors as family and friends arrived for the service. At the conclusion of the service the PGR stood a Respect Line and saluted the flag as the Hero was moved from the chapel to the coach. With the able assistance of the Purcell Police Department, the PGR escorted the Hero, along with family and friends, to Hillside Cemetery in Purcell, Oklahoma. Upon arrival at the Cemetery the PGR immediately formed another Respect Line and saluted the flag as the Hero was moved from the coach to the bier.

    At the cemetery Military Honors were provided by the Army Honor Guard, who rendered a three round volley, played Taps, then folded the American Flag and presented it to the Hero’s daughter. Following the presentations by the Army Honor Guard, the PGR presenters read the PGR Plaque and Invocation. The Hero’s son and daughter were both presented with a PGR Plaque, a framed copy of the PGR Invocation, and a copy of the condolences received from riders across the nation. The RCIC then thanked the family for inviting the PGR to come and participate in honoring the military service of their loved one. The PGR presenters then came to attention, saluted the flag, and exited the area.

    Thank you to all my fellow Patriot Guard Riders for attending this mission. Your presence made a difference to this family. Most of all, thank you LTC Grover C Peters for your service to this great nation. Rest in Peace soldier, your mission is complete.

    Respectfully,

    RCIC, Harry Mitchell
