Rory Caine Brown

Rory Caine Brown passed away on August 19, 2009, at the age of 32. He served his country, proudly, as a Tow Gunner with Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, United States Marine Corps. He left to cherish his memory, his wife and two sons.

A memorial service was held for him on Sunday, August 23rd, at The Apostolic Lighthouse Church, Georgetown, Texas.

More than thirty five Patriot Guard Riders attended the service. They stood in a flag line along the drive into the parking lot, so that family and friends drove past a line of American flags as they arrived for the service.

At the conclusion of the service, Riders formed a line of flags in the fellowship hall, as family entered, in honor of this Marine.

Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement

“The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.

We don’t care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. If doesn’t matter where you’re from or what your income is; you don’t even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.

1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
2. Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protester or group of protesters.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.

To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and we are praying for a safe return home for all.”
