    Luis Casas, Active Duty
    USA - WoT
    MULTI-CITY, California - 15 Jan 2018




    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    The family and the US Army have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to accompany SSG Luis Casas, USA(AD) as he comes home to his family.

    SSG Casas was serving with the US Army and sadly passed away while on active duty. He will be coming home to California, arriving at LAX and we will accompany the Hero and his family to Taft, California, his hometown.

    His brothers in arms say things like "you will never find a better leader, mentor, soldier or friend than SSG Luis Casas". He will be missed and never forgotten.

    NOTE: This mission posting is to facilitate your voluntary participation in honoring this American Hero. For those interested, and all are welcome, we will be accompanying the hero and his family from the airport to the mortuary. Please see the time table if you would like to participate.

    This mission involves an aircraft arrival. Arrival times can change at the last minute so please check this thread for any last minute changes before leaving.

    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.
