Albany, NY - 05/27/2019
|Mission applies to the following Region(s):||Region 4, Region 5|
|About the Mission:||The Patriot Guard Riders have once again been invited to participate in the Albany Memorial Day Parade on Monday, 5/27/19. This is always a very well attended event both in participants and just plain folks lining the street - especially if the weather is nice.
Grand Marshall's for the 2019 Albany Memorial Day Parade:
The Clark family - US Army Colonel (Ret) Jack Clark, Kathy Clark and Kyle Clark - Gold Star Family of US Army LTC Todd Clark who was tragically killed while serving his country in Afghanistan.
The PGR can always be counted on to show up in big numbers and I hope this year is no exception. It's always gratifying to see and hear the reception we get from the public - and the reviewing stand gets a kick out of our somewhat noisy "salute".
So get to work on those duck walk inner thigh muscles and left hand clutch grip. As always Flags,,,,,,,flags,,,,,,,,
See you there..........

|Special Information:||Central Ave. is open until about 9:00 am, so early arrivals will park in the parking lot of Albany Tile and Marble (should be closed for the holiday). This parking lot is 50 yds West of Partridge St on the South side of Central. Once Central Ave is closed PGR will take up our spot on the North West side of Central and Partridge. Once the street is shut down, we usually line up in the middle of Central Ave., to the left of the fire trucks.|
