Confirmed Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the interment service for Mr. Richard Steyer. Mr. Steyer served his country from 1942 to 1952 in the US Army Air Corps and the USAF. He served as a crew chief, assuring the aircraft used in winning the war were air worthy. He left the service as a TSgt.

Once published his obituary can be found here: http://www.legacy...=184826838

Date/Time: Thursday, 06 April 2017. The interment service follows a 1 pm funeral service and procession from Liberty Hill and is expected to begin sometime after 2:30 pm.

Location: Austin Memorial Park, 2800 Hancock Dr, Austin, TX 78731. We will stage at the cemetery.

1:50 pm - 2:20 pm - Staging
2:20 pm - Mission Briefing
2:30 pm - Flag Line

Wx: Hi 79 deg, clear skies

Notes: Bring a bottle of water for yourself and one for a friend. This is a flag line only at the cemetery. The hope is that those attending the Capt Barnett airport recovery mission earlier in the day can also man the flag line at the mission for TSgt Steyer.

Ride Captain: Keith Longacre, , (512) 751-8955
Flag Wrangler: Mark Wells

Please attend this mission to honor TSgt Steyer and show his family our gratitude and respect for his service in the defense of freedom some 70 years ago.

At the conclusion of the earlier mission, most of us found a place to grab lunch & enjoy some fellowship, then proceeded on to the grave side service of Mr. Steyer. 11 members stood a flag line as the Coach , family & friends arrived. Air Force Honor Guard rendered military honors & were sharp as tacks as usual. Attendees were impressed & pleased that we were there "Standing For Those That Stood For Us" Thanks Mark for filling in as Flag Wrangler.
