    Gerardo "Ace" Acevedo, Active Duty, USMC - MULTI-CITY, California - 13 Feb 2018

    Honor Mission

    Gerardo "Ace" Acevedo, Active Duty
    USMC
    MULTI-CITY, California - 13 Feb 2018


    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    The family and the U S Marine Corps have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to attend the funeral service of an American hero, MGySgt Gerardo "Ace" Acevedo, age 52. We would be honored to do so.

    Gerardo Acevedo enlisted in the U S Marine Corps on April 22, 1991. He served nearly 27 years before his passing on Feb 3, 2018. He attained the rank of Master Gunnery Sergeant, no easy feat. He is spoken of by his Marines, both those above him and below him as being a rare leader of men, who mentored others, and could always be depended on. He served many deployments with the Corps, both in Iraq and Afghanistan. His last assignment was with III Marine Expeditionary Force, G-4 MTC.

    He will be missed by many, his family, both blood and Marine, and all those who knew this great man and great Marine!

    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 church services to his final resting place. Please see the time table if you would like to participate. For those who would rather go directly to the cemetery, we will meet you there.

    PRIMARY STAGING DETAILS: 13 Feb 2018
    Primary Staging Time: 12:00 P.M.
    St. Andrew Catholic Church
    311 N. Raymond Ave.

    It is with great sadness that I learned of the loss of this hero. We mourn
    with their family and friends. Though we mourn, we stand tall to honor them.
    This hero's service and sacrifice will not be forgotten. We ask that this hero
    rest in eternal peace.
    Hero, you can stand down. We have the watch.

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of this American Hero, a grateful nation mourns your loss. 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.
