About the Mission:

The staff of the Howard B. Tate Funeral Home has requested Patriot Guard Riders participation in the military honors funeral services of Mr. William Ronald "Bill" Holstein. Bill, 90, passed on 10 November 2022.

Bill has no family to attend his services, so Patriot Guard Riders will stand for him in that role. Unfortunately, not much is known about his life, but Bill was born in Troy, NY on 1 December 1932. He entered the US Army at the age of 19 on 23 May 1952 and spent 16 months assigned to 1014th, Company B, 194th Engineer Combat Battalion in South Korea. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Corporal, and for his service, was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal w/2 Bronze Service Stars and the United Nations Service Medal.

There is no obituary available at this time. Please join me in standing for this hero of "The Forgotten War".
