About the Mission:

Very little is known about our honoree.  No DD-214 is available, but we know that he was honorably discharged because he is approved for burial at Calverton National Cemetery.  He reportedly served from February 1968 until September 1970, including in-country combat duty in Vietnam.

As this American Hero has no family to attend his final honors, Patriot Guard Riders are proud to stand in as his family.
