Honor Mission

Michael P. McCarthy

U.S. Navy Veteran

Rochester, New York - 08-31-18


The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested, by the family, to stand in honor of Michael P McCarthy.  We will form a flag line for the arrival of family and friends.
This is a tragic sudden loss for the family of Michael and our presence would be a monumental moment to show support and to honor this 48 year old Father, Son and Veteran. Michael leaves behind a Wife and two young children, loving family and many friends. He served our country enlisting in the Navy as he felt it was the right thing to do.
