The Patriot Guard Riders have been asked to participate in the upcoming bridge dedication ceremonies for Capt. David VanCamp and Sgt. Matthew Hunter. These ceremonies will be on May 24th at 2 p.m., beginning at the bridge by the Bella Via Restaurant in Elm Grove.
This will be a two part ceremony starting with the “S” bridge, by the Bella Via, being named in honor of Sgt. Matthew Hunter. There will then be a group walking parade to the Bridge Street bridge, where the bridge will be named in honor of Capt. David VanCamp. No motorcycles will be needed for this mission.
Further details will be given at the ride briefing.
Staging for these ceremonies will be in the lot behind:
Bella Via Restaurant
1 Burkham Court
Wheeling, WV 26003
Staging will be at 1 p.m. with ride briefing at 1:15, as to allow us time to form a flag line for the first ceremony.
As we will be standing a flag line at both bridges, all members are asked to bring a 3 x 5 American flag. We will also carry these during the parade. As always, guests are invited.
Please monitor the weather and dress accordingly for safety.
Ron Jones, WV ASC – North, will be the RCIC for these dedication ceremonies
