US Army Veteran - Cpl Chuck Coy, Susanville, CA
The Patriot Guard Riders having been invited by the family of fallen US Army Veteran, Cpl Chuck Coy, to stand and honor during his Memorial Service in Susanville at the Elks Lodge, Susanville, CA. Cpl Chuck Coy served his country proudly in the US Army from 1946 to 1948. Cpl Chuck Coy served in the Philippians and Korea.
After his service in the US Army, Cpl Chuck Coy later moved to Lassen County where he started his Towing and Garage business in Doyle, CA. Cpl Chuck Coy loved all kinds of racing, especially riding his motorcycle in the high desert. Because of his love of life, his sense of humor and his love for his family, he will be missed by many.
The mission involved a flag line at the Susanville Elks Lodge, Susanville, CA. for family and friends to pass through. On a warm, windy fall day, 18 PGR members showed to present Honors for this true American Hero, where the PGR stood Honor Line at his Memorial Service.
In addition to our Patriot Guard Riders we had a great representation of many groups on this Mission.
