Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard Riders,
We have been once again called on to stand for one of our own, the Family of John F. Seger requests we stand to honor him at his memorial service and burial. John served in the Navy from 1965-1969 to include tours in Vietnam where he was a radarman and ended up as a gunner on a river boat.
John was a proud member of the Patriot Guard and attended several missions in the Spokane area as well as in San Diego CA. For the past 5 years, John had been going on the Run For The Wall to Washington DC. It was only after joining the PGR and RFTW that he started to open to his family and friends about his Military Service in Vietnam.
