The family of Mr. Brooks has asked the Patriot Guard Riders to honor his memory and service to our country by standing a Flag Line at his funeral service, ride with him one last time and stand again at his internment.

After the mission brief, the Riders will establish the Flag Line and await the arrival of Mr. Brooks’ family and friends. When directed, the Riders will return the flags to the support vehicle, flags furled and Riders dismissed. Those wishing to ride in the procession to the cemetery will receive a safety brief.
