Part 1 of 2 Parts

The family and the US Army have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to assist in honoring their Hero, SPC Christian Puerto Sanchez, 23, at his funeral service, we will be honored to do so.

SPC Christian Sanchez was born on November 20, 1997 and sadly passed away on June 28, 2021.

SPC Sanchez was serving active duty with the US Army at the time of his passing.  He was attached to HHC Special Troops Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, Sustainment Brigade. He had also previously served and was honorably discharged from the US Marine Corps prior to enlisting into the US Army.  He had served time in combat in the Global War On Terror (GWOT).

Christian's friends, family, and fellow soldiers will miss him greatly.  They all say he was that guy you could always count on, when you would call him, he was always there for everyone, the one constant in everyone's life.  He was loved and respected by all and will never be forgotten.

For those interested, and all are welcome, we will be accompanying the hero and his family from the mortuary to the church and back. Please see the timetable if you would like to participate.
