Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:
Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: NYS Guidelines of 2 March 2022, 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: PGR will stage at the entrance to the cemetery and form a flag line for the arrival of Mr. Cole's remains. PGR members will follow the direction of the Cemetery Director on whether to escort the mourners or to ride ahead to the Committal Shelter. At the Committal Shelter, PGR Members will participate in services with the military honor guard.  Services are scheduled for 11:00am.

Please arrive with your own water, a clean 3x5 American or US Air Force flag, and dress for the weather.

Thank you for taking time to help honor the US Army and US Air Force service of William F. Cole, and to support his loving family.
