An Advance Party of five Patriot Guard Riders made meticulous preparations on Saturday, October 1, 2011, for the unit's escort of Adair County native Sgt. Dakota Meyer, Medal of Honor Recipient, to the Adair County Salutes Dakota Meyer event at Blue Raider Stadium today, Sunday, October 2, 2011. They are, from left Tom Folsom, Hardin Co., KY; James Keown, Bowling Green, KY; Joe Hare, Columbia, KY; Shawn O'Keefe, Bowling Green, KY; and Bobby Castle, Elizabethtown, KY. The Patriot Guard will stage at Adair County High School, proceed to the start point of the rolling procession at Adair Veterans Memorial Highway and Campbellsville Road for the southbound route around the Historic Adair County Courthouse - which will have added significance after today - up Jamestown Hill, and east on Russell Road to the Robert L. Miller Drive entrance to Blue Raider Stadium. In all, the PGR expects at least 150 riders up to 400 or more. "Columbia has never seen anything like this," Joe Hare said.
