    The community of Riviera Beach, Anne Arundel County, MD has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to stand our flag line and participate in the dedication of their memorial to honor those members of the community who have served as Military or First Responders. This dedication of the Memorial has been in process several years and finally has been completed. Many members of the community who have served and the survivors of those who have served over the years and were lost will be in attendance. There will also be Color Guards from local fire, police and military units. The ceremony is scheduled to last approximately 1 hour with local speakers participating.
    Please come out and show the community of Riviera Beach the respect the Patriot Guard Riders share for their members who volunteered to give their all if required for the safety and protection of their community.
