The Patriot Guard has been requested to WELCOME HOME another of our own! Pvt. Nicholas Makowicz will be returning to NY after a long deployment in Iraq. After his visit here he will be returning to Iraq with his unit. His grandmother & grandfather, as well as his dad, brother & sister, and fiance will be joining us in WELCOMNG him home! Nicholas was a graduate of Connequot HS in 2008 and joined the Army that summer. His unit is based out of Fort Reilly, Kansas.

The flight is due to land at 5pm. We will be meeting at the Tower Diner beforehand.

The family lives in Ronkonkoma, so a possible MC escort is possible ~ weather depending. Support vehicles will be able to go ahead and provide a flagline in front of the house after our Soldier lands. Please follow safety guidelines for providing a safe escort.

****Please remember...follow staging directions. If you decide to go to the airport on your own...YOU MUST park in field 6...NOT IN FRONT OF THE TERMINAL.

DATE: Monday, 03/21/11
DETAIL: Flagline to WELCOME HOME US Army Soldier, Pvt. Makowicz
Staging: Tower Diner...I will be there by 3:30pm

Our friends at LIMA are working diligently to help us with parking and possible curb-side parking for MCs. PLEASE WAIT FOR INSTRUCTIONS from LRC before trying to park curb-side!!!!

Thank you.
