CAP Graduation and 
Pass-In-Review Ceremony

Scotia, New York - 07-21-18


Lt. Col. Dave Panzera of the 109th Airlift Wing and CAP Encampment Commander, has once again invited the Patriot Guard Riders to participate in the Civil Air Patrol New York Wing Encampment Graduation and Pass-in-Review Ceremony. Those that attended this event last year know what an impact we had, and how much our participation was truly appreciated. Once again, PGR motorcycles and vehicles will be afforded parking on the tarmac, and a PGR flag line will form the backdrop for the graduation and review ceremony. Photo ops with PGR members and bikes near the aircraft will follow the closing of the ceremony.

Rather than riding in and parking individually, this year we will stage off base and provide escort for a group of WWII veterans that will be transported to the ceremony.  Staging detail shown below.

Lets have another great show of PGR support for the young cadets that have chosen to participate in the Civil Air Patrol and are graduating from the Encampment program.
