Fellow Patriot Guard Riders,

As of the moment I write this post there is no RC assigned to this mission but due its short notice nature I compiled what I could.

We have been asked to stand and honor Andrew O'Keefe US Navy. He served upon the USS Springfield(CL-66) during World War 2, which was part of TF-58 off Okinawa as well as many other battles. The Springfield was missed by a Kamikaze by a mere 50 yards during the Okinawa campaign and credited with 3 planes shot down while protecting the CV's.
