About the Mission:

Patriot Flight organizers have once again requested the participation of Patriot Guard Riders in the sendoff ceremonies and welcome home for veterans traveling to Washington DC as part of the Honor Flight Network. As we have done in the past with Patriot Flight, at "O-Darker-Thirty", PGR riders will escort the veterans from the staging point shown below to Albany International Airport, where the sendoff ceremonies will take place"....  We have also been asked to welcome our honored veterans back home that evening. Please see details in Stage Two of this mission posting below.

The escort and airport ceremony are open to any and all individual motorcyclist and motorcycle clubs and organizations.  Please do your best to participate in this mission. It's important that we demonstrate to our veterans that they have never been forgotten.
