About the Mission:

The family of Dale J. Cummings, US Navy veteran, has requested the presence of Patriot Guard Riders at his funeral services. Mr. Cummings passed away on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at age 69.

Mr. Cummings served from 1971 - 1977 and earned the rank of Petty Officer 2nd Class. He served during the Vietnam Era, but was stationed stateside and worked as an airplane mechanic. After his military service he went to work in the civilian world on classified projects for the space program. He most recently was working with the team that looks to launch the Artemis rocket later this month.

Dale was a Harley rider and worked with, and became close friends with, our current member Bill Centola.  Please join me in providing a honorable flag line for his funeral on Monday the 7th of November.
