I was contacted by the Brothers in Blue this afternoon; they are requesting our presence at the funeral for Daniel Adkins, a 20+ year veteran of the Army National Guard who made several deployments to the sandbox. They are requesting we join them as they escort Dan from Winfield to the Donel C. Kinard Memorial State Veteran's Cemetery in Institute. They have helped us out before on missions, and I am hoping some of you will be able to help out with this escort.
This will not be an official PGR mission, but don't let that keep you from attending. A distinguished veteran has passed away, and we want to do what we can to honor him and his family, and also be a help to those who have helped us in the past. You may want to bring a 3x5 flag in case there is a request for an impromptu flag line. If your bike or cage is capable of safely flying a flag in an escort, come prepared to do so.
Staging location: Chapman Funeral Home, 3624 Winfield Road Winfield, WV, US, 25213
Staging time: 1030-1045
I will be the point of contact for this event, call me if you have questions.
