The sons of George N. Murray, United States Marine Corps, Vietnam Veteran, have invited the Patriot Guard Riders to assist with the escort of their father, and to stand in honor of him as he is laid to rest this Thursday, November 12th.
This will be a lengthy escort; it begins in Beckley, WV and terminates at the Donel C. Kinnard Memorial State Veterans’s Cemetery in Institute, WV… a distance of approximately 72 miles (but it could be more, depending on the route we take).
Staging information is as follows:
Rose and Quesenberry Funeral Home
1901 S Kanawha St.
Time: Please arrive at the funeral home no later than 1145; we anticipate departure at 1215; the service is scheduled for 1400 hrs at the cemetery.
Note: if your schedule will only allow you to participate in the honor mission at the cemetery, please be at the Admin building by 1330. We will stand up a flag line during the memorial service at the Committal Shelter. If you plan to make the escort portion of this mission from Beckley to Institute, please contact the RCIC. I will likely be departing the Charleston area around 1015, or so.
