The family of Diane Sandra Manzi has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to be present to honor their hero with a flag line at her church services.  It will be our privilege to do so.

Diane Manzi served her country in the California Army National Guard (CANG), Company A, 640th DASB for 10 years, 1990-2000, where she attained the rank of Sergeant.  During that time, she performed duties as a Petroleum Supply Specialist and Administrative Specialist.  Her awards included the Army Service Ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, Army Reserve Components Achievement Ribbon, California Good Conduct Medal, and the California Drill Attendance Ribbon.

After the military, Diane worked for Disneyland and Universal Studios.  Her hobbies/interests included traveling and watching the Patriots and Yankees games.

Diane is survived by her parents, Frank and Diane, longtime companion, Phineas, and sisters, AnnMarie, Joan, and Kristina.  She is also survived by several nieces and nephews and one great-niece.

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 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.  Show respect to all who are there, not just the ones we are honoring.
