Ladies and Gentlemen, the Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in a memorial service to remember and Honor the Coast Guard Personnel who have lost their lives in the service of their country while on Search and Rescue Missions and/or Training Missions; while on duty, on or near the mouth of the Columbia River and beyond. Upon completion of the mission, we have been invited to eat lunch (pulled pork sandwich lunch) at the Cape D Station mess deck. The boats will be docked at the station, all are welcome to view.
