SHORT NOTICE HONOR MISSION
1SG James E Akins Sr, 71, US Army, Retired, of Killeen, TX


The family of First Sergeant James A Akins has requested the presence of the Patriot Guard Riders at the Committal Service of their Loved One.

Akins was drafted in 1966 by the United States Army, and remained a soldier in the United States Army from 1966 to until his retirement in 1992, and defended honor in Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield, better known as The Gulf Wars. He proudly and honorably served twenty six years to achieve the rank of First Sergeant where he cultivated many skills, many lifelong friends, picked up a nickname “Boogie Man a.k.a Boogie” and a level of respect and admiration. His entire obituary may be found here: http://www.heritage-funeralhome.com/obituary/james-akins-sr
