Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.

Special Information:

Staging is at 10:00am in the parking lot below the cemetery.  If we can proceed in ahead of the cortege, we will go to the Committal Shelter as a group.  Otherwise we will escort the cortege from the entrance of the cemetery to the Committal Shelter.  The cortege is expected between 10:30am and 10:45am, with services set for 11:00am.  At the Committal Shelter, PGR members will form a flag line for a dignified transfer, and render honors during services with the military honor guard.  Following services, PGR members will render a final salute for Mr. Antworth.  Please be prepared with a clean 3x5 American or US Army flag, and dress for the weather. The current forecast calls for temperatures in the 30s with a chance of snow showers.

Please set aside some time to attend all or a portion of these short notice services to honor Mr. Antworth's service to America and support his loving family.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
