Patriot Guard needs your help
This is a Special Mission notification of the passing of Cloyde C. Pinson, Sr. Two days after the Patriot Guard escorted the body of Pfc. Cloyde C. Pinson Jr. to the Dallas-Ft. Worth National Cemetery, the cemetery his father helped establish, Cloyde C. Pinson Sr. died.
Mr. Pinson, an 83-year-old World War II veteran, was instrumental in establishing the Dallas-Ft. Worth National Cemetery which was established on 12 May 2000, exactly 33 years after his son was killed in action in Vietnam. Mr. Pinson was a tireless advocate for veterans.
The National Cemetery, has requested that the Patriot Guard assist in posting the Avenue of Flags in honor of Mr. Pinson. The Avenue of Flags consists of 162 flags on 22 foot poles, the posting of which normally only occurs on Memorial Day. Maximum participation is always encouraged, even more so for this event. Mr. Pinson dedicated his later years to the establishment of this cemetery for all veterans and the posting of the Avenue of Flags is one small measure of support for a family that has served both the communities of Dallas-Ft. Worth as well the United States. As the posting of the flags by sunset is essential, volunteers other than those from the Patriot Guard are encouraged. This event is to occur on Monday, 17 April 2006 at 1700.
The funeral for Mr. Pinson will be held in Irving, Texas, Tuesday, 18 April 2006 at a time to be announced followed by procession to the National Cemetery for interment. The family (through the National Cemetery) has requested the Patriot Guard lead the procession to the National Cemetery as it led the procession for Cloyde C. Pinson Jr. on the 12th of this month.
The D/FW National Cemetery was Cloyde's dream. He worked long, hard, and continuously on it; even after it was opened.
Cloyde spent 15 years of his life assuring that you and I could be buried with our friends at a local National Cemetery. All the while knowing he would not be buried there as his son, a Marine, has been resting in the family plot at Laurel Land since his return from RVN in 1967.
This notice has been posted in the Special Mission section of the PGR web page. An Itinerary will be posted to the thread as soon the details of the funeral become available. Please post all follow-up messages to the thread.
Stand Tall and Silent,

Will be there in spirit.
"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
