The Patriot Guard Riders having been invited by the family of fallen US Marine Corp Veteran, Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr, to stand and honor during his interment service at the Diamond Crest Cemetery, Susanville, CA.. The mission involved a flag line at the Diamond Crest Cemetery, Susanville, CA. for family and friends to pass through. On a beautiful, Spring day, 22 PGR members showed to present Honors for this true American Hero, where the PGR stood Honor Line at his final resting.

Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr served his country proudly from 18 Nov 1952 to 17 May 1955.

Upon separating from the US Marine Corp, Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr worked as a painter in the Placerville, CA area. Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr was a proud US Marine veteran who retired in the Susanville area in 2003. Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr passed on 18 Mach 2012. Because of his love of life, his sense of humor and his love for his family, he will be missed by many.

I would like to give a special thanks to Northern Nevada, Reno PGR Dave Kealey and his group who had nine members come to Susanville (6 motors and 3 in a cage) to stand Honor Line with American Fags during this Mission. In addition to our Patriot Guard Riders we had a great representation of many groups on this Mission. They include:

U. S. Army Honor Guard
Patriot Guard Riders
American Legion
Marine Corps League

Lastly, but not the least, I am thankful to Pvt Thomas J. Menefee Jr, US Marine Corp Veteran, an American Hero, and his family. Your watch has been stood, your duty to protect this nation is complete, and you’ve earned the right to be called a true American Hero.

Your service and sacrifice will not be forgotten.

Rest in Peace, your Mission is complete.
