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:

8:15am - PGR Members will form a flag line for the arrival of the family (expected at 8:30am).  Funeral services are scheduled for 09:00 - 09:45 am.  Following the services, PGR Members will perform a dignified transfer and then escort the procession to Oakwood Cemetery in Penfield, NY.  If you cannot be at the funeral home, please meet us at the cemetery for the services there.  Click here for map to cemetery

At the cemetery, the PGR will render honors with the military honor guard during services and render a final salute as Mr. Stanton is laid to his final rest. Come prepared with a clean US or Marine Corps Flag, and dress for the weather - current forecast is for low thirty degree temperatures and a small chance of precipitation.  Please come and honor Mr. Stanton's service to America and support his loving family in their time of grief.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
