On February 17, 2011, the Patriot Guard Riders, Buffalo Soldiers, Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, Rolling Thunder and more organizations had the honor and privilege of standing for and escorting Donald Rumppe from St Pauls, North Carolina to his final resting place at Sandhills National Cemetery near Ft Bragg, North Carolina.
Donald Rumppe served three tours in Vietnam.
This video is intended to be a respectful tribute in honor of this Vietnam veteran.
