A group representing the Patriot Guard Riders assembled for the funeral services of United States Air Force veteran, Master Sgt. Robert Ditz on Nov. 11, at Daniels Funeral Home in Live Oak.
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse group of riders from across the nation. In addition to motorcycling, they share an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security.
The main mission of the Patriot Guard Riders is to attend funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission undertaken by the Patriot Guard Riders has two objectives: to show their sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families and their communities and to shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by protest through legal and non-violent means.
