The Patriot Guard Riders having been invited by the family of fallen US Army WWII Veteran, Tech 5 Grover D. White, 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, winter day, 12 PGR members showed to present Honors for this true American Hero and last of a great generation, where the PGR stood Honor Line at his final resting.

I would like to give a special thanks to PGR member Blake Hutchinson who had his granddaughter and her friend stand Honor Line with American Flags during this Mission. In addition to our Patriot Guard Riders we had a great representation of many groups on this Mission.

They include:

Lastly, but not the least, I am thankful to Tech 5 Grover D. White, US Army WWII Veteran, an American Hero and last of a great generation, 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.
