Bikers Transport Marine’s Remains Across Country After Finding Out They Were Being FedEx’d

41-year-old marine soldier, Jonathan Turner, served 17 years and seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Originally from Georgia, Turner remained in California after retiring from the service.

Sadly, Turner passed away from combat-related issues. The Marine Corp had organized a service in his honor, but Turner’s family back home in Georgia couldn’t afford to make the trip to California to attend the service and receive his cremated remains.

That’s when helped arrived.

The Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) describe themselves as a “non-profit organization which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services honoring Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.”

Jonathan’s cremated remains needed to be shipped 2,000 miles to his family. Insted of letting Fedex ship the remains, the PGR stepped in and said they were not going to let this happen. In just a few days, the group managed to organize a way to carry his remains across country and over 100 bikers were involved in the process.

One group of bikers would drive Turner’s ashes to another group, who they respectfully left the ashes with. The group then drove the ashes to another group and so on. The act was repeated until Turner finally reached his family.

“It’s heartwarming, to see all these people here,” Annie Glanton, Jonathan’s mother told Fox 5 Atlanta “I know that he was loved by a lot of people.”

In a world so divided it is comforting to see such respect for a person who gave so much for his country. The world needs more of this.

Please watch the clip below to see how it all happened.
