US Army, WWII Veteran, Corporal Lenn Bill - Susanville, CA
Patriot Guard Riders having been invited by the family of WWII Veteran Corporal Lenn Bill, who died in 2018 in Susanville, CA. Born in April of 1926 in Adin, CA.
On a very cool morning, 70 - 80 degrees, in Susanville (Only cool because of the several fires burning in nearby areas, Redding, CA fire and Eagle Lake - Spalding, CA fire with smoke blocking the sunshine from heating up the morning faster) 20 PGR arrived to pay final Honors and Respect to our Fallen WWII veteran Lenn Bill. His former wife was also buried with him at the cemetery.
