About the Mission:

The family of Korean War Veteran Paul Raymond Garland has invited Patriot Guard Riders to help honor this American Hero. Mr. Garland served in the US Army from 1951-1953. He had 11 months of service in Korea, assigned to the 5th Infantry Regiment. He was honorably discharged from active duty on January 19th, 1953 with the rank of Corporal (E-4). He earned the National Defense Medal, Korean Service Medal w/2 Service Stars, United Nations (Korea) Service Medal, and Army Combat Infantry Badge.

UPDATE - The graveside mission for US Army Paul R. Garland has been canceled. The family is hosting a memorial service for Paul instead at the First Baptist Church of Hamburg, at 120 Main Street, Hamburg NY 14075 at 1PM. The family of Paul Garland completely understand if this is not something that can be accommodated, as I would hate for your volunteers to endure these harsh conditions if they do not feel comfortable. As such, Any member who wishes to attend this service and honor this hero, we will assemble a flag line at the church @ 12:30 Wednesday 1/17/24 with our plaque presentation to follow.
