The family of “Steve” McGlaughlin has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to attend the final service for their loved one. Steve is another Vietnam Veteran who fought, but lost, his battle with cancer; we will be honored to stand for him. This mission will consist of a flag line at the funeral home, an escort to the cemetery, and a flag line at the cemetery. This will be our first PGR funeral mission at the new Donel C. Kinnard Memorial State Veteran’s Cemetery.

  Please remember to bring your 3×5 flags, dress for the weather, and if your bike/cage is equipped to safely fly flags, please come prepared to do so. This will be a relatively low-speed escort through through town, approximately 3 miles in length.
