I just received an invitation from the family of Lonnie J. Woods, US Army WWII veteran, for the Patriot Guard to stand up a flag line of honor at Lonnie’s funeral service Wednesday April 18th. I know this is extremely short-notice, but I’m hoping a few riders will be able to help me honor this hero and his family. Lonnie was a father, grand-father, great-grandfather, and even great-great gandfather…he was a true hero who will be sadly missed by friends and family. Staging information is listed below:
Staging location: Cunningham-Parker-Johnson Funeral Home, 1325 Washington St., West, Charleston, WV https://tinyurl.com/btr2s9g
Time: 0930-0950, mission brief at 0955, flag line in place by 1000. The service begins at 1100.
Escort: Upon completion of the service, we will be providing escort to the Teays Hill Cemetery in St Albans, WV. If your bike/cage is capable of safely flying flags, please come prepared to do so. This escort will be approx 13 miles in distance, mostly through town on Rt 60…it will not be high-speed.
RC: Buddy Palla will RC this mission of honor.
