SSG Thomas P. Seiler

US Army

Attica, New York - 10-12-18


Two years ago - 20, 21, 24, 25 October 2016 - the PGR did a 4-part Mission in Honor of US Army Staff Sergeant Thomas P. Seiler, who passed away unexpectedly on 12 October while on Active Duty at Fort Bragg. As a reminder, the Mission Narrative was as follows:

"SSG Seiler was a Patriot Launching Station Enhanced Operator with the 108th Air Defense Artillery's Headquarters & Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. His awards and decorations include: Army Commendation Medal w/2 Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters; Army Achievement Medal w/Silver Oak leaf Cluster; 3 Army Good Conduct Medals; National Defense Service Medal; Non-Com Professional Development Ribbon (2); Global War On Terrorism Service Medal; Korea Defense Service Medal; 3 Overseas Service Medals; Army Service Ribbon."

The family of SSG Seiler was very impressed with the PGR presence during that difficult time. The Mission was led by RC Terry Garigen.

This Friday, 12 October 2018, the 2nd anniversary of SSG Seiler's passing, the PGR will present an Honor & Remembrance Flag to the father of SSG Seiler. Recently-appointed PGRNY HOTH Director Donna Barnes will participate in this presentation.
