James Mignone, US Navy, Vietnam / San Mateo, Palo Alto, CA
The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to Escort the Family and James Mignone. Here is what his Family had to say about their Hero...
My dad, James Mignone, Navy veteran, served two tours in Vietnam, from 1960-1968, first on the USS Forrestal and then on the USS Hancock. He was honorably discharged with a National Defense Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and three bronze stars. He leaves behind his devoted wife of 42 years, Betty Mignone, his daughter, Jessica Mignone, and his son, Nathan Mignone. James was a war hero, amazing father and provider, and tireless defender of his family and country. He loved the mountains, shooting, and above all, motorcycles. His final wish was to take "one last ride."
