    Patriot’s Name: Richard W. Weidman
    Mission Name: Funeral @ HNC
    Military Branch: US Navy
    Obituary: Richard was born in Aug 1938 and passed on 4/8/11. He served in the US Navy from 1960 – 1964.

    Mr. Weidman was 72 and a HOMELESS VETERAN. No family at the ceremony. Sad.

    But the PGRs were there to Stand Tall and Silent in respect and honor for this American Hero. The VFW conducted the ceremony and there was a full Honor Guard. PGR accepted the Flag. Military funeral. The least we could do.

    TQ

    This is one of the many things the PGR does for our Vets. The PGR is such a great thing, it is the perfect manifestation of love for our soldiers and Veterans.

    A group of a few misguided people full of hate at Westboro started the need for the PGR some years ago. Many of the original ones were Viet Nam Vets who said, no we won't let this happen again like before.

    But by the grace of God that misguided hate, caused an organization of people (like TQ) who have found a way to give back to those who gave.

    Who knows the stories of all the homeless, some by their own doing, others by hard luck or misfortune. But no matter what, a Vet was, and always is a Vet.

    Role call for Richard W. Weidman, does anyone know the whereabouts of this soldier who served honorably. Yes, God has sent the PGR to stand for him and called him home for good.
