PGR members will stage at the gravesite in preparation for the arrival of the cortege carrying Mr. Gugino.  We will form a flag line at approximately 12:45pm to salute the cortege as it arrives.  PGR members will perform a dignified transfer and then render honors with the military honor guard during graveside services.  Following services, we will render a final salute as a group.

Please come prepared with a clean, 3'x5', American or US Navy flag. Bring your own water, and dress for the weather. The current forecast is for cloudy with low 20 degree temperatures.

Thank you for devoting the time to honor Mr. Gugino's service and stand in place of family for his graveside services.  There are two missions on Tuesday, 2022.12.27, at Holy Sepulchre. Please put aside what time you can to honor one or both of these veterans.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
