The family of Leslie J. Sword has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to stand in silent honor and respect for their loved one at his final services this coming Wednesday…we will be honored to stand for this hero. The mission will consist of a flag line at the Fairhaven Baptist Church on Campbell’s Creek prior to the funeral service, an escort to the Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens in Cross Lanes, and a flag line for the interment service at the cemetery.
Please remember your 3×5 flags, dress for the weather, and if your bike/cage is set up to safely fly flags, please come prepared to do so. The escort will not take place on interstate highways, but will be close to 20 miles in distance on city streets and secondary roads.
Staging information is as follows:
Staging time at the church: 0930-0945 w/ mission brief at 0950; flag line in place by 1000
Service: 1100 (after the service, we will provide escort to the cemetery)
RCIC: Anita Gunnoe
All riders, clubs, or groups are welcome to come stand with us as we honor another one of America’s Greatest Generation. Mr. Sword stood for the cause us freedom many years ago, let us now stand for him.
