On February 3 & 4, 2011, the Patriot Guard Riders, American Gold Star Mothers, and American Legion Riders had the honor and privilege of standing for SGT Yannone and escorting him to his resting place in Rockingham, NC.

God, please bless Kiki Yannone, his family, and his friends. Also, please bless those serving now, those who served, their families, and our allies.
