***Special Escort Mission*** Gold Star memorial statue Sunday August 15th
Fellow Patriot Guard and associates;

On Sunday August 15th the Patriot Guard will be doing a multi-state escort for several Gold Star Mothers and the GSM memorial statue from Gettysburg PA to its new home in Manchester NH for an unveiling ceremony on the 19th.

Only 5 of these statues have been produced by the sculptor Andrew Chernak and was months in the making, we hope you’ll come join us for the escort.  There will be a number of other groups participating as well; CVMA, ALR, Rolling Thunder, US Marine Riders, CT Rolling Flags, Nam Knights and more (see attachment for full details).

New York PGR Escort Details

1000hrs
I-84   exit 5   Montgomery NY     Hess Gas Station

We anticipate a 1045hrs arrival but this can vary greatly depending on traffic and other delays.  It is imperative that if you plan to join this escort, please be at the Hess Station early and gas up immediately... then move off to the side of the parking area! We will need all the bays to be free for the continuing procession to be able to get gas ASAP (stops are only planned to take 15-20 minutes). As you see the escort pulling into the station, please be on you bikes and ready to go!!! NYPGR/associates will fall in at the very end of the procession behind the last motorcycle in the second (and longer) motorcycle group and before the tail gunner.
Once the escort is again underway, we need to stay in a tight staggered formation. We will be travelling eastbound on I-84 to exit 2, near Danbury CT. We will be travelling at posted speeds. If you plan to continue with the procession, join the group at the CT refueling stop. If you will end your escort at this refueling stop, please stay out of the way of those who are continuing on. Region 7 is  still trying to secure LEO for this mission, and they should know better about how to handle the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge once NYSP gets back to them.
I already plan on being upstate this weekend, so will meet anyone riding up at the the Hess Staging, so please plan on traveling up solo if your coming or if anyone would like to set up a staging on Long Island, please get back to me and I will post the info

I'll relay further details as they become available.

Thank you for what you do...
