The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to participate in the Wreaths Across America program on Saturday, Dec 14th, at the Donel C. Kinard Memorial State Veteran’s Cemetery in Institute, WV. We will stand up a flag line for the opening ceremony, then help lay wreaths at the headstones of our fallen heroes. Use your own judgement as to how you arrive (bike or cage); this mission will not involve any kind of escort. Remember your 3×5 flags and dress appropriately for an outdoor mission.
If you miss the staging location departure, you can come directly to the cemetery which is located adjacent to the WV State Police Academy on Academy Drive (less than one mile from the Go-Mart). The ceremony will take place at the cemetery committal shelter; the flag line will be in place by 1150, for a noon ceremony.
Staging time: 1100-1120, mission brief at 1125, KSUat 1130
Staging location: Go-Mart, 6032 Fairlawn Ave,Dunbar, WV https://tinyurl.com/lx5hjuo
