On Wednesday, 08 Februry 2023, five (5) Veterans Without Family from the San Bernardino County Coroner's Office will be brought to Riverside National Cemetery, 22495 Van Buren Blvd., Riverside, CA 92518, for burial.    

The five (5) Veterans accompanied by the SoCalPGR from the San Bernardino County Coroner are:

Philip Noel Officer              76    U.S. Navy
Carolyn Catherine Polar      69   Wife of Philip Officer
Richard Cole McFadden       82   U.S. Air Force
Robert E. Stevens Jr.          67   U.S. Air Force
Steven Craig Edwards        61   U.S. Army
Richard Warren Arthur       75   U.S. Air Force

We will depart from San Bernardino County Coroner's Office, 175 S. Lena Rd., San Bernardino, at approximately 0700 hrs.

The PGR will be these veterans' families and stand by while the Patriot Guard Riders render military honors at Riverside National Cemetery.

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

They are not alone; we are their family.

"If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days,
Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say,
Our Country is in mourning, for a soldier died today."

NOTE: This mission posting facilitates your voluntary participation in honoring these Military Veterans. For those interested, and all PGR members are welcome, we will
accompany these heroes from the San Bernardino County Coroner to their final resting place.

Please observe all previously designated COVID-19 Rules.

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 participate in your car. If this is your first mission, go to the initial staging area, where 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 those we honor.
