The family of Ulysses Lewis Jr. 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.

Ulysses served in the United States Army from Sept. 9th. 1943 until March 16th. 1946.  Ulysses served during WWII. He was a flight Engineer and Top Turret Gunner on B-29.  He was honorably discharged as a Sgt. E-5.  Ulysses passed away at 95 years old of natural causes.

After leaving the Army he went to work for TWA (Trans World Airlines) for 50 years.

He loved to BBQ, watch baseball and college football, and tend his vegetable garden.

He is survived by his daughter Janet Lewis.

Janet would like the PGR to escort Ulysses & the family from the family home to Miramar Nat. Cemetery.

Come join us in honoring a member of the greatest generation.

NOTE: This mission posting is to facilitate your voluntary participation in honoring this Military Veteran. For those interested, and all PGR are welcome, we will be accompanying the hero and his family from their home to his final resting place approx. 5 miles. Please see the time table if you would like to participate. For those who would rather go directly to the cemetery, we will meet you there.

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