Riders will stage directly at the gravesite; we will have to look for signs directing us to “Marsh”.
Riders will establish a flag line, be briefed about our hero and stand tall and silent as family and guests arrive.
United States Marine Corps will perform the flag folding ceremony, if for any reason they are unable to be there, PGR will be prepared to help with these honors. Our certificate of appreciation will be presented to the family.
Once the service concludes, the MRC will signal to pull the flags and return them to the support vehicle to be furled and put away.
Riders will then be debriefed and dismissed.
Important Note: Riders must have their own face covering/mask available for any situations where 6’ or more social distancing may not be possible. We do not want family or guests to be uncomfortable by our presence.
