  • * ADDITIONAL MANDATORY REQUIREMENT: Wearing a protective face covering of some kind is required...homemade facemask, bandanna, etc. (Patriotic face coverings would be particularly appropriate) This will not only provide an extra layer of protection to ourselves and others, but will send the message that the PGR takes this crisis seriously and is performing this Mission responsibly.
Special Information: There will be a welcome home flag line at the airport for the Commander's arrival. There will then be an escort to her home. Further details will be given at the staging area/time. Please remember to bring your flags and we MUST observe all the covid rules. We don't want to make her welcome home a problem. So remember your MASKS.
