The family of Morrise Ratliff has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to be present to honor their hero for his service to his country.  It will be our privilege to do so.

Morrise proudly served in the United States Marine Corps from 1981 to 1990 achieving the rank of Sgt.  He was awarded SDI SGT, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon w/2 stars, Good Conduct Medal w/2 stars, Letter of Appreciation (2), Meritorious Mast, Navy Achievement Medal w/1 star. and Expert Rifle Badge.

After his service with the USMC, Morrise worked for Sony from 1990 to 2000.  He enjoyed spending time with his children and wife and listening to music.

Morrise is survived by his wife, Lorenz Ratliff; children, Monique, Myles, and Pedro; and five grandchildren.  He is also survived by his siblings: Joasette, Teresia, Linda, Eric, Kitzy, Tasha, and Zeola. 

The family is requesting a Flag Line at the cemetery.

NOTE: This mission posting is to facilitate your voluntary participation in honoring this Military Veteran. For those interested, and all are welcome, we will be awaiting the family at Miramar National Cemetery with a Flag Line.  Please see the time table if you would like to participate.

You do not have to be a Veteran or a motorcycle rider to attend this mission. All PGR members are welcome. We encourage those who do not ride to attend in your car. If this will be your first mission go to the initial staging area and you will be briefed there by the Ride Captain (RC). Dress for motorcycle riding or dress casually if you are driving a cage (car). Please feel free to attend any portion of this mission you can. Please ride/drive safely.

Please remember that our mission is to stand tall and silent, and with honor and respect for our Heroes. No talking, smoking, or cell phone use during the flag line or service. Please keep radios off and engine noise to a minimum. Observe the 15 MPH speed limit. Remember, cemeteries are hallowed ground. Show respect to all who are there, not just the ones we are honoring.
