About the Mission:
The Family has requested Patriot Guard Riders participation in the final interment of Allan P. Atwell (PGR attended his Memorial service back in May).
PFC Allan P Atwell was a WWII Veteran and served in Europe during the Battle of the Bulge Campaign. Prior to his death Allan himself specifically requested Patriot Guard Riders participate in his military honors funeral when the time comes.
Allan P Atwell, one of our "Greatest Generation" heroes passed away on March 6, 2022 at the age of 96. Allan was very proud of his service in WWII and could be seen locally at any number of veteran events willing to speak on his experiences as a veteran of the Battle of the Bulge as well as his subsequent assignment as an MP for the balance of the war.
After the war, Allan continued his service to his community by becoming an instrumental member in a number of volunteer fire departments. He was chairman of the Clifton Park Emergency Services Advisory Board. Allan also became a Board member of Patriot Flight, a participant in the Honor Flight network.
Allan would have celebrated his 97th birthday on this August 3rd.
