Patriot Guards

I got my first email since joining the Patriot Guards. Luckily the weather looks good for this weekend but I would be riding up regardless by either bike or cage..
Patriot Guards has a mission up in Paragould, AR

Patriot Guard,
The family of Staff Sgt Kevin Jessen just called to ask us to join them
in a home state memorial service. The service will be held
this Saturday March 25 in the old court house in Paragould , Arkansas.
Service to start at 3:00 PM. This has been confirmed. I hope, even
though it is short notice, that we have a turnout in Honor of a Hero.
Thanks,
Mel Brown

Well Folks,

It is set at last. The staging area is at the Legion Building on Court St. (Directions: Take Hwy 412 east into Paragould. You will pass a Wal-Mart then come to a stop light. by the 7UP and RC plant. Turn left onto Court St. The Legion Building is just past the High School at the next stop light. ) I plan on staging between 1:30 and 2:30. It is then a short 10 blocks straight to the courthouse. Craig, in Paragould, has this set up with the Legion and the Local Police too.

For the folks that will be traveling north on 67/167, I will take a suggestion from Toby to meet at the gas station in Searcy at exit 45. I may have to leave there a little before the 12:30 time though. For the guys that are south of Little Rock, I will meet you at the Exxon Station on I-530 at the Dixon Rd exit about 1 mile south of I-30 at 10:30 AM

Lets make a great showing on this on guys and gals. They called and requested us to be there.

Thumbs up New post to an old thread

Dianna,

Just want to say THANKS!! for introducing me to the Patriot Guard. I've often wished I could play bugle so I could participate in the Bugles Across America program, but I couldn't carry a tune in a box. When I read your post and followed your link, I thought this is something I can do! I've e-mailed the state captain who happens to live just down the road a few miles. The group is out on a mission ride right now, as I write this, but I expect to be hooking up with him before long. As a retired Viet Nam vet, I feel it's an honor to be able to give something back. What a great program!
