HOTH Mission
Wreaths Across America – Massachusetts Escort
Salisbury, Massachusetts – 12-09-19

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Once again the Patriot Guard Riders have been asked to participate in this year’s Wreath Across America as it transits Massachusetts on its journey to Arlington Cemetery.
For those unfamiliar with Wreaths Across America (WAA), to quote form their webpage: Since 1992, the Arlington project, had been the quiet mission of Morrill Worcester and his family.
In 2006, internet stories fueled attention for his annual quest and Worcester was contacted by the Patriot Guard Riders who generously offered their help with the project. Since then the Patriot Guard Riders have escorted the wreath trucks down the East Coast and taking several days to make the trip. This allows stops at schools, monuments, veterans’ homes and communities, and gives the group an opportunity to promote their mission: Remember-Honor and Teach. This “parade” of truckers, supporters, and well-wishers has become an annual event and teaching opportunity for WAA and a valued part of the Arlington Project.

IMPORTANT NOTES: With the weather suitable for motorcycles, the State Police will usually not allow cages to escort. If cages show up, they, in most cases, are directed to the rear of the convoy. If the bad weather precludes the use of motorcycles, the State Police may be more amenable to having a few (only) cages in front, although this is not guaranteed.
Also, mind the weather conditions and adverse road conditions (snow, sleet, icy conditions). The motorcycle escort will be cancelled if those conditions exist.
If in doubt and for other questions, MA WAA CONTACT: Ron Hill, 508-415-1984
