Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.

Special Information:

Staging is at 11:00am at the funeral home.  PGR members will create a flag line for the arrival of the family (expected at 11:30am).  We will hold the flag line until the end of calling hours at 3:00pm.  At 3:00pm, there will be a service at the funeral home followed, at 3:30pm, by military honors.  PGR members will participate in the military honors following services.  There is no escort and no cemetery involved in this mission.

These are substantial calling hours. If your time is limited, please arrive at any point and participate as you are able.  Please come prepared with a clean US or Army flag. Dress for the weather; the current forecast is for temperatures in the upper 50s and a chance of rain showers.

Please note, there are two Region 2 PGR NY Honor Missions Saturday. Please do what you can to participate in one or both missions.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
