After serving a tour in the “sandbox” members of the 811th Ordinance Company are returning to the armory in Rainelle, WV. The Patriot Guard will be honored to escort them home to their waiting families and loved ones as they arrive back in Wild Wonderful West Virginia.

As always, bikes and cages are welcome to participate in this “happy” mission. For rider safety anyone planning to fly a 3 x 5 flag should test fly it at interstate speeds for rider safety before the mission. We anticipate a police escort to the Rainelle area.

The current weather forecast is for temperatures in the upper 70’s and a 10% chance of showers. Please check your weather forecast before leaving home.

Mission Staging:

Dual staging locations provide the opportunity for riders to join at one of two locations.

Assistant State Captain Buddy Palla,,  will be at the I-64 eastbound Welcome Center # 10 in Huntington. 

District Ride Captain Pat Hanifin, Sr,,  will be at the Beckley Travel Plaza Exit 45 off I-77/I-64 below Tamarack.

Staging times will be updated when we have an estimate of arrival time at the welcome center. We anticipate a mid-morning arrival at this time.
