US Marine Corps Veteran
Corfu, NY - 01/12/2022

About the Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by the staff of Thomas Funeral Chapel to stand for Mr. Thomas F. Coyne, an indigent United States Marine Corps veteran with no known family.  Thomas, 62, passed on December 6, 2021.

This is very sad that a Marine who signed up to serve his country has no one to be there as he is laid to rest. This will be a short but meaningful mission.
