The family of Mr. Glyndon Burkhart, a US Air Force (Retired) Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders at the services, LEO supported procession, and graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one.

My dad passed last week and there will only be 2 or 3 family members attending the funeral (because most have passed away already). My dad was a Vietnam Veteran, he Retired as a SMSgt and received Little to No Thanks for his Service from the Community. I want to send him off the right way, with Honor. I am the President of a Nonprofit Organization (TITFF) that has attended many Funerals for Veterans who had little to no family. Our Organization will be there but I wanted to invite y’all as well.
