    Philip Joseph Kelly Jr., Retired
    USMC, USCG
    Jacksonville, North Carolina - 08 Dec 2017


    ABOUT THE MISSION:

    Brothers, sisters and friends of the PGR, it is with a heavy heart the I inform you that we have once again been called upon to stand silent and proud for one that stood for us.

    The wife of Chief Philip Joseph Kelly Jr. has requested that we escort the Chief on his final mission and that we stand a flag line to honor him at the graveside service on Friday the 8th of December 2017. We will answer this call as always, with honor and respect.

    Chief Kelly first served 4 years in the Marine Corps before enlisting in the Coast Guard, from which he retired after serving an additional 19 years.

    This will be a one day, two part mission.

    We will be staging at 1230 hrs at the Handy Mart, 1180 Henderson Dr. Jacksonville NC. 28540, on the corner of Gum Branch and Henderson Dr.

    We will go KSU at 1245 hrs and ride to the funeral home as a unit.

    Upon arrival at the funeral home we will get formed up, have a short brief and prepare to escort.

    Large bike flags are encouraged.

    We will be escorting the Chief and his family from Johnsons Funeral Home, 2658 Henderson Dr. Jacksonville, NC to the Coastal Carolina Veterans Cemetery in Jacksonville, NC.

    Upon arrival at the cemetery we will dismount and form a flag line around the family and friends for the graveside ceremony.


    Part one;
    Staging: 1230 hrs At Handy Mart
    1245 hrs to Johnsons Funeral Home
    At aprox. 1330 hrs we will provide escort to cemetery
    1400 hrs we will stand flag line
    Upon completion of service we will stand down and depart

    **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 NCPG, and it's 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 ride are asked to attend the pre-mission briefing. It will include a safety briefing, and any unique ride information known to our RCIC that may be specific to the mission. Member safety and well-being is always a principal ongoing concern, our RCIC's 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 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.

    PRIMARY STAGING DETAILS: 08 Dec 2017
    Primary Staging Time: 1230 hrs
    Handy Mart
    1180 Henderson Dr,

    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.
