The family of Jack Mace has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to stand in honor of their loved one on Wednesday, October 8th, prior to his memorial service at Maranatha Baptist Church. After many months of declining health, Jack entered the gates of heaven this morning, and suffers no more. He and his wife are good friends and neighbors of mine, and when I asked her if she would like the Patriot Guard to honor Jack, her response was “absolutely”.
This will be a flag-line only mission, no escort will be needed as Jack will be buried in a separate ceremony the following day; your mode of transportation is up to you (bike or cage). In the event of inclement weather, our flag line will be posted inside the church entrance. When the service begins at 1900, the mission will terminate.
Staging time: 1730-1745, with a mission brief at 1750, flag line in place by 1800 (6:00 pm)
Staging location: Maranatha Baptist Church, 1 Maranatha Acres, Charleston WV (the church is located just off the Tuppers Creek exit of I-77, exit 111) https://tinyurl.com/oc33gfh
RCIC: Since I am so close to this family, I will be serving as the RC.
