ABOUT THE MISSION:

The family of Mr. Maurice W. Goyette, a “Greatest Generation” hero, has requested Patriot Guard Rider presence at his military honors funeral services.

Narrative:
Mr. Maurice W. Goyette passed on Wednesday March 15, 2017. Maurice attended Scotia-Glenville High School, graduating in 1942. After graduation, he served his country during World War II in the United States Army Air Forces from 1942-1945.
