About the Mission:

Patriot Guard Riders has been requested to participate in the 8th Annual Jason Johnston Scholarship Fund Dice Run, which the PGRNY has been a part of for the past several years. The Run benefits a Scholarship set up for Albion High School seniors and is administered by the American Legion.

Army Specialist Jason Johnston was 24 when he was killed in Afghanistan in the War on Terror on Dec. 26, 2009. Specialist Johnston was on his second deployment as a Paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne. He completed a 13-month deployment in 2008 and returned in October 2009 where he was killed by a roadside bomb the day after Christmas.  PGRNY stood for U.S. Army SPC Johnston and his family for 3 days in early January, 2010.  PGRNY members and Army 82nd Airborne Veterans Joe Joyce and Charlie Gysel have proudly participated and led this mission in the past. With the tragic passing of Joe Joyce, Charlie Gysel will continue the tradition in honor of Joe.
