    Honor Mission

    American Heroes,
    Prescott, Arizona - 21 Mar 2018

    The American Legion Post 6 Honor Guard, Army National Guard and Prescott National Cemetery hold a ceremony once a month called "Group Honors" at Prescott National Cemetery. The PGR is honored to be a part of this ceremony.

    Group honors are presented once every month. These services are for those deceased veterans who have had a private service or church service where military honors were not rendered but they have been placed at the Prescott National Cemetery. Every veteran interred at Prescott National Cemetery will have military honors, whether requested or not. The number of veterans being honored at these group services usually number from 3 to 14.

    Veterans being honored this month are:

    Howard L. Bradshaw, US Army - WWII, Korea
    Thomas F. Lambright, US Navy - Vietnam
    Robert A. Mikkonen, US Army, Korea
    Gudmund J. Hansen, US Marine Corps, WWII

    Primary Staging Time: 10:30 A.M.
    Prescott National Cemetery
    500 AZ - 89
    Prescott, Arizona - 86301

    Ride Captain:
    Victor Borelli (Springer)

    Special Instructions:
    Briefing: 10:40 AM
    Flag Line: 10:50 AM
    Full military honors: 11:00 AM
    The PGR will stand down at the conclusion of military honors.

    Flag captain: Gary Sheldon

    PARKING -- PNC is still under construction - so here are the parking arrangements for this mission:

    Flag Captain: go up the middle road; park where you have been parking, to the right of the flag pole.

    Honor Guard Van: go up the middle road; turn right at the top and park where you have been parking (at the turn-out above the columbariums).

    Bikes: go up the middle road; park at the top, to the right of the flag pole.

    Cars/cages/trucks: go up the middle road, then turn right and park down the west road (across from the columbariums) close to the curb.

    Immediate family: up the middle, but then the three cars which park across from the shelter will have to BACK IN. More than three cars will have to go to the right down the west road. If we know ahead of time that there will be more than 3 immediate family, we can save spots for them at the turn-out at the top of the columbarium.

    Flags & Water:
    Flags Will Be Provided
    Large Bike Flags will NOT be needed.

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of these American Heroes, 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 Heroes 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.

    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s parents.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s friends.
    They were not just soldiers: they were our soldiers.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s children.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s love.
    My wife and I offer our sincere thanks and prayers for these true American heroes. Their service and sacrifices will not be forgotten. Their valor did not go unnoticed. We are forever grateful for their service to our country. May they never be forgotten, and may God grant them eternal peace.
    We fought a revolution. We won the revolution. We wrote the Constitution.
    The constitution doesn’t grant power, it keeps the government off our backs.
