The PGR will honor Veterans Without Family by being at, and participating in, the Veteran's Full Military Honors funeral ceremonies. We will stand in for the families who can't be there. A Flag Line will honor the Veterans as we show our appreciation and respect for their military service.

This week the U.S. Army Honor Guard will not be there. We will be the honor guard and family. Bugler Mike will bring and play the bugle and I will bring the flag.

This week we will honor the following heroes:

Bannon, Richard       Captain                       U.S. Marine Corps
Johnson, Joseph       Private First Class        U.S. Marine Corps
Guillot, Alfred           Private First Class        U.S. Marine Corps

May the souls of these Veterans rest in peace beneath the green carpet of grass in a Nation they helped to keep free.

"We Are Their Family"

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 R/C (Ride Captain).  Dress for motorcycle riding or dress casually if you are driving a cage (car).

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.
