Honor Mission

John J. Rueckert Sr

US Navy - WWII Veteran

Goshen, New York - 10-13-18


The family of John J. Rueckert Sr has requested the Patriot Guard Riders to honor this WWII Navy Veteran who served on the USS Springfield in the Pacific Theatre. John was honored to go on a Hudson Valley Honor Flight with his daughter. She said he was so impressed by the program, especially the people who greeted and escorted them. However, like many WWII Veterans, he felt that he "did not do anything important" and did not deserve to be honored, yet HVHF was one of his cherished moments.
