Earlier this month we brought you the story of the Patriot Guard riders. Their mission is to deliver a special flag to California to fulfill a family promise.

That flag draped the casket of a World War II and Korean War veteran.

The mission took more than a week to deliver the flag that draped Buddy Weyland's casket to his long-lost daughter in California.

Family members say the mission is accomplished and was a success.

Members of the Texas, Arizona, and California Guard riders carried the flag across four states. The mission began March 9th when members of DFW-area guard riders received the flag from Becky Lewis of Madill.

Becky's mother had the flag stored in her home, but her dying wish was for the flag to be with Buddy's daughter.
