A group of 130th Airlift Wing members will be returning home from their deployment overseas, and we have been invited to be there to help welcome them back. This mission will not involve any kind of escort, so feel free to leave your bikes at home, especially in view of the projected weather forecast (very cold and snow likely). Be sure to bring a 3×5 flag and a smile.

NOTE: Please ensure you monitor this mission thread for updates; military return dates and times are flexible. I would recommend you visit this thread (or check your email) before you leave home on the day of the mission, to ensure you have the most current information. Additionally, we will be on a Federal military installation, no weapons of any kind are permitted…period.

Staging time: 1230, mission brief at 1235, KSU 1245.

Staging location: Go-Mart, 1502 Greenbrier St, Charleston, WV; at the intersection of Rutledge Rd and Greenbrier St (near the entrance to Coonskin Park)

RCIC: Buddy Palla, 304-610-1324

We will need to enter the base as a group; if you plan to attend this mission, you need to be at the Go-Mart in time for the mission brief. Again, the date and time are subject to change; the information I have listed above is the most current at this time.
