Special Instructions:

Please cover all possible offensive patches before mission

This flag line only mission will entail brief comments from clergy and family with full military honors with honor guard. To avoid possible confusion please take and respond to commands from the honor guard as to limit noise within the chapel itself

I am also requesting any member with a Marine flag to be present to honor our warrior. Members: review flag line etiquette prior to mission.

Please do what you can to attend for our WW-II hero as there are two important missions within region 2 the same day.

Flags & Water:

Large Bike Flags will NOT be needed.
Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
