The family of CPL Carlos E. Ferguson has requested the Patriot Guard Riders stand in silent honor as he is remembered and laid to rest. We will do so.

Carlos Ferguson, “Buddy” joined the army with his brother Bobby during the Korean war. Bobby didn’t want him to go alone. Buddy went missing on 18 MAY 1951. His brother Bobby is still MIA.

The US Army has identified Carlos’ remains and they are being returned to the family for burial. PFC Carlos Ferguson, after being listed MIA-POW was promoted to the rank of CPL and awarded the purple heart.
