The family of Brian Catayong Crump 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.

Brian was born in Olongapo City, Philippines, on 15 November 1975 and entered Eternal Rest on 14 April 2022 in Sasebo, Japan.

Brian lived in Olongapo until the age of seven. In 1982 along with his parents, he moved to San Diego on his father’s Navy orders. He attended Samuel F.B. Morse High School, where he competed in Cross Country and Track and Field, graduating in 1994. 

Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997. After graduation from ”A” school, he was assigned to Ordinance Disposal Unit TWO(EOD MU2) in Little Creek, Virginia. In 1998 he attended the Law Enforcement Apprentice Course at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, and was assigned to Fleet Activities Sasebo in Sasebo City, Japan. Brian was in Sasebo from 1999 to 2003, where he was promoted to Operations Specialist Second Class and converted to Master-at-Arms rating. From 2007 to 2010, Brian was attached to NCIS Security Training, San Diego. While in San Diego, he advanced to Chief Petty Officer in 2008 and was commissioned under the Limited Duty Officer program, Designator 6490 Security Officer in 2010. In December 2010, he served as the Installation Security Officer and Antiterrorism Officer in Souda Bay, Crete.

His awards/citations included the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (7 awards), Joint Service Achievement Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal (4 awards), Iraq Service Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, NATO Service Medal, and other unit and service awards.

While stationed in Sasebo, Japan, Brian met the love of his life, Kana Adachi, and tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2003. The following year they had a second ceremony in Sasebo. After various assignments that included Guam and San Diego, Brian was back in Sasebo in 2017.

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 is your first mission, go to the initial staging area, and you will be briefed by the R/C (Ride Captain). Dress for motorcycle riding or wear casual attire if you are driving a cage (car). Please feel free to attend any portion of this mission you can. Please ride/drive safely.

Remember that our mission is to stand tall and silent 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 honor.
