All Military Branches

Rome, NY - 12/09/2019
Mission applies to the following Region(s): Region 2, Region 3
About the Mission: Once again, Walmart has requested the participation of the Patriot Guard Riders in a ceremony for the Wreaths Across America Program at the Rome Free Academy in Rome, NY and to provide an escort for several trucks carrying wreaths to NYS Thruway Exit 33, Verona, NY. The Jr. ROTC group will be providing a color guard. We will stand a flag line at the presentations, which we have done for a number of years, in honor of the wreaths that will be placed graveside to honor our American Heroes. Following the ceremony, we will escort the trucks to the Verona Exit. Walmart continues to support Wreaths Across America by transporting these wreaths to cemeteries in Holly, Michigan; St. Louis, Missouri; Nashville, Tennessee; and Fayetteville Arkansas. The arrival of several tractor-trailers full of wreaths is subject to weather and driving conditions. (Please see Special Information, below.)
