SHORT NOTICE ***Honor Mission***

Tom Poole, USMC

July 29th&31st N. Smithfield RI

Dear Patriot Guard Rider Family,
The family of US Marine Tom Poole, have requested the Patriot Guard Riders to hold a flag line in honor of a man who was a Marine, a volunteer at Operation Stand Down RI, a vital member of the RI VA Hospital helping fellow Veterans in need of guidance, a Ride Captain and Conflict Resolution Contact for the RI Patriot Guard Riders and a helping hand to many.

Tom was the husband of Deanna (Dee) Poole, former RI State Captain of PGR. He was a son, father and grandfather. He was a friend! A friend in the way a friend should be. Upfront and to the point and true to his word for anyone he said he would help. A true friend that is already missed so much. I have never known a man who touched so many lives or helped so many Veterans and Gold Star Families in the short 8 years he was in RI.

There will be a three part mission this week.
