On January 7, 2011, the Patriot Guard Riders (joined by Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association NC 15-1 and Rolling Thunder) had the honor and privilege of standing for and escorting SFC Angel de la Cruz from Adcock Funeral Home (Spring Lake, NC) to his final resting place.
Angel served in the Korean War and served in two tours in Vietnam.
Three of Angel's children pursued military careers and one daughter died in the World Trade Center on 9/11.
God Bless Angel de la Cruz, his family, and his friends.
We respect the privacy of the family and we make every effort to not photograph them during this difficult time.
