Well before this flight is scheduled to depart from Atlanta, it has been delayed almost 90 minutes, now with an ETA of 9:20PM. The worst of the weather is yet to come with the potential for further delays or a cancellation. We will STAND DOWN from this Mission and honor SPC Birka at his Interment Service, next week.

The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand in honor at the Dignified Transfer for US Army SPC, Keaghen Matthew Birka, on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 7:45PM, at Denver International Airport, Gate 5.


SPC Birka died tragically in a motorcycle accident while stationed at Fort Stewart, Georgia. He was 19.

We will stage at the Final Approach "waiting" facility, which is across the parking lot from the Conoco gas station at DIA.

7:00PM - Stage at the Final Approach
7:15PM - Mission Briefing
7:30PM - Depart for gate 5 to form Flag Line

Jerry "TopSnow" Snowbarger will serve as Ride Captain.


I will be honored to attend and will bring Flags.
