    Hampton VA Medical Center Escort - Hampton, Virginia - 23 Sep 2017

    Hampton VA Medical Center Escort
    Hampton, Virginia - 23 Sep 2017


    The Patriot Guard Riders have been graciously invited by Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the BPOE Lodge 366 to assist in the safe and secure transit and care of numerous patients of the VA hospital, from the VA facility to an outdoor event in Hampton on Saturday 23 September 17. All contacts have been made and this is a go.

    These are all Veterans who are currently residents of the medical facility, some of whom get very limited time outdoors and specifically at any type of public recreational event. Our role will be that of non medical assistants to the medical staff during their time at the event, in addition to providing an escort from the hospital to the VIP section of the event. The escort will involve several buses in addition to other vehicles making a short transit.

    There will be medical personnel assigned to each patient requiring high levels of support while we will take on the role of supporters for those patients who are ambulatory. We will be there as a support group only. There will be dedicated parking for us as a group with some space provided both for bikes and cages
    It has already been stated that this will have a huge positive impact on our Brothers and Sisters currently inpatient at this facility.

    Please take some time out your schedules to help make this a great day!

    Primary Staging Time: 10:15 A.M.
    Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center (General Visitor & Patient Parking lot, corner of MLK, Jr. Blvd. & Franklin Blvd.)

    Safety is our utmost priority. Every effort possible is made in planning and executing the PGR Mission Statement in a manner that minimizes the inherit dangers of riding a motorcycle, including riding in groups of all sizes and any situation. While the PGR and its riders have a remarkable riding record in the execution of our missions, infrequently members have been injured in unforeseen accidents. In an effort to mitigate the risk of preventable accidents, all attendees who wish to ride in a Patriot Guard motorcycle escort or Honor Mission are asked to attend the pre-mission briefing. It will include a safety briefing and any unique ride information known to our Ride Captain(s) that may be specific to the mission. Member safety and well-being is always a principal ongoing concern. Our Ride Captains are asked to stand down from any mission that cannot be accomplished in relative safety or unreasonable risk. This includes both rides and flag lines in inclement weather and other conditions. It remains each individual PGR member’s responsibility to ride within their own comfort zone and be cognizant of their surroundings and skill limitations. If the ride and/or mission conditions present challenges beyond your skill, comfort, or needs, you are expected to exercise good judgment in foregoing any planned participation.

    Flags & Water:
    Flags Will Be Provided
    If you have large bike flags, please bring them.
    Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
