Details 

Richard A. Girouard’s final wish was to have the Patriot Guard Riders attend his interment service. The family of Mr. Girouard has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to honor his memory and service to our Country and honor his final wish by standing a Flag Line at his interment service.

Riders will stage at DFW National Cemetery Visitor’s Center for the mission briefing. At that time, four honor bikes will be identified and moved to the staging lane to accompany the procession. The remainder of the riders will proceed to the designated committal shelter, establish the Flag Line, and prepare to receive the family and friends of Mr. Girouard.

The Patriot Guard Riders have been asked to serve as pallbearers. This will also be a two casket service as Mr. Girouard’s wife passed away a couple of days prior. At the conclusion of the service, and when directed by the MRC, the riders will return the flags to storage, be debriefed and dismissed.
