The event consists of a short, but solemn, ceremony including a moment of silence, the presentation and honoring of the National Colors, a short address by a local official, the presentation of ceremonial wreaths of the military branches, and the playing of Taps followed by wreaths placements on veterans graves by family members of the fallen and volunteer members of the public.

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:

We will form a flag line prior to the start of the ceremonies, which are scheduled for 12:00 pm. We will render a salute during the playing of taps and at the conclusion of the brief ceremonies, we will stand down and then render assistance distributing wreaths among the public gathered to lay them at the graves of the veterans buried at the cemetery. Those members interested can also lay wreaths and assist the public in locating veteran graves. Please dress for the weather.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
