Fallen Hero Mission Complete
Col. James W. Harrison, Jr.
of Missouri

Monday, May 14, 2007



This was a 3 part mission.  On Saturday, over 80 motorcycles and roughly 100 Patriot Guard Riders provided escort for the remains from KCI to Davis Funeral Chapel in Leavenworth.  Thanks to Sparks of Legion Rider Post #370 Overland Park  for driving the flag truck and setting up a reception line as the hearse and the riders arrived. 

Sunday a number of our ranks stood watch outside the Funeral Home as visitors attended the Visitation from 1400 hrs to 1600 hrs.  Thanks to AJ and Lizard for the water run as the temperature and humidity continued to climb.  Thanks again to Sparks of Legion Rider Post #370 for providing the flags again.

Monday was a standard Patriot Guard Mission.  Thanks for 117 motorcycles and riders who blessed us with their presence.  Thanks as well to the number of “cagers” who joined our ranks to show respect to Col. Harrison. Special thanks to the fine folks from Legion Rider Post 400 of Topeka for bringing their flag trailer for us and for the folks at American Legion in Leavenworth Post #23 for opening their doors for us.

Thanks to all who attended and gave up personal time to complete this mission.  Thanks to all the new first timers who joined in with us.

We all are truly saddened for the loss of a great leader.  Thank you Col. Harrison for your service to our country.  May God be with you as you report for duty in your in life everlasting.  Rest well brother, you served your country and mankind here on earth.
