About the Mission: The family of Patrick Raymond Coburn has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in a celebration of his life. Patrick, 68, passed on July 3, 2019 in Jacksonville, FL, and will be interred in Tallahassee National Cemetery in October.

Born in Bennington, VT, Patrick was raised in Dutchess County, NY. At age 17 he enlisted into the United States Marine Corps. As a Field Radio Operator, he deployed to Vietnam with 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, infamously known as "The Walking Dead". He later served with H&S Co, 2nd MTBn, 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune, NC. Patrick later returned from combat with injuries but didn’t let that stop him from loving life. In fact, he rarely spoke about his military accomplishments nor service due to his humble nature.

After his service in the military, Patrick returned to Dutchess County and had a successful career in the medical field at Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center and Taconic (DDSO) for 37 years. We remember his dedication to service with the U.S. Marine Corps, the Mental Health profession, and his family.
