Honor Mission

SGT Owen J. Lennon, Active Duty

USMC - WoT

MULTI-CITY, New York - 25 - 28 Jul 2017

 



ABOUT THE MISSION:

Marine Corps Sgt. Owen James Lennon was a flight engineer on the ill fated KC-130T that crashed in Mississippi on July 10th. Lennon studied criminal justice for two years at the University of New Haven before joining the Marines. Lennon proved himself as a Marine quickly, becoming one of the youngest flight engineers in the Corps. He was deployed to Afghanistan and over the years his work took him to far corners of the world. The Marines named Lennon Marine of the Year in 2013, putting his name on a KC-130T, the same craft in which he would later lose his life.

The Patriot Guard Riders will be privileged to be there to render Honor, Dignity and Respect for the life and faithful service of United States Marine Corps Sgt. Owen James Lennon.

N.B. - THIS IS AN OPEN CALL TO ALL OTHER MOTORCYCLE ORGANIZATIONS WHO WISH TO PARTICIPATE WITH THE PATRIOT GUARD RIDERS.  PLEASE FOLLOW DIRECTIVES OF THE PGR LEAD RIDE CAPTAIN FOR THIS MISSION.
