Patriot Guard Riders honor one of their own

Patriot Guard Riders who escort funeral processions to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery lost one of their own last week when Mark Schroeder, 64, of Concord, was hit and killed while bringing up the rear of a funeral procession on Telegraph Road. On the morning of Schroeder’s funeral Friday, his fellow Patriot Guard Riders wait at the entrance to Jefferson Barracks. Above, from left, are Jeff Hirsch of Villa Ridge, Ride Capt. Dan Doerer of Town and Country and Bob Griffith of St. Peters.
