The Patriot Guard has been invited to send off LCpl. Childers. Caleb lost the lower part of his leg as a result of injuries sustained while serving in Iraq. He is returning to California to continue his rehabilitation and will be there for 6 to 12 months.

RC for this mission will be Keith Mitchell (

Staging will be at Yeager Airport at 04:15. Flag line will be in place at 04:30.

Caleb has given so much for our freedom. While this is a very early mission, we must remember that he has given more than is asked from us.

There will be no escort, so cages are just fine. Please be very careful at this hour of the morning. Just bring a 3 X 5 flag and a smile. He needs our support.
