About the Mission:
Patriot Guard Riders has been asked to stand a flag line for the beginning of the 2022 Run for Briggs 5k/Ruck/1 Mile Fun Run. This event raises money for the Dashan J. Briggs Memorial Foundation which uses the funds for veteran and military family needs. Technical Sergeant Dashan J. Briggs made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the 106th NYS Air National Guard [Westhampton Beach, New York] unit as a Special Missions Aviator. While deployed on March 15, 2018 Dashan was one of seven men killed when the HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter they were riding in crashed in western Iraq near the Syrian border.
It is our privilege to honor this event, which keeps the memory of one of Americas Heros' in the forefront of helping others.
