Tunnel to Towers

Home Dedication Ceremony



The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to stand a flag line for Tunnel to Towers.


US Marine Corps Sgt Brian Johnston enlisted in December 2001, following his younger brother Kevin into the service. He was on his first deployment when his vehicle was hit by an IED in Fallujah, Iraq. He lost his right arm and right leg in the blast. Sgt Johnston is a third generation Marine, his father served during the Vietnam era and his grandfather served during World War II.


This will be a HOTH format. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will present Sgt Johnson with the key to his specially adapted, mortgage-free Smart Home. The ceremony will begin at the Hooper Civic Center on 5580 W 4600 S in Hooper at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, December 18, 2019. We will stand a flag line at the Hooper Civic Center for the ceremony and then escort Sgt Brian Johnston to his new home, where we will stand another flag line.


The ride captain for this mission will be Craig Petith and he can be reached at: 435-760-6764.


Staging: 9:00 AM at LDS church, 5000 S 5900 W, Hooper.
