Capt. Gregory A Hamilton, 42, Paramedic/Firefighter, Denton, MD, 19/20 Apr 2011

This mission is a 'go'. All contacts have been made.

The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand in honor of Capt. Gregory A. Hamilton, 42, Paramedic/Firefighter, Denton, MD. He was taken from us in a motorcycle accident on April 12, 2011 after completing his duty shift in Delmar, DE. Lt. Hamilton was a career flight paramedic with MedStar MedEvac, a part time paramedic at the Goodwill Fire Co. in Centreville, MD, and at the Delmar Fire Co., in Delmar, DE. He was an EMS Capt. at the Queen Anne-Hillsborough VFC, in Queen Annes Co., MD, and a member of the Maryland Red Knights, Chapter 2, Easton, MD.


Greg's love for motorcycles was only surpassed by his unselfish willingness to help others in need. It's now time for us to help him by showing our appreciation for his devotion and dedication. He will receive full Fire Department Honors.
