Part 1 Details 

The PGR has been requested by the DFWNC to assist in conducting a committal ceremony for the inurnment of 10 veterans whose bodies had been donated to the UT Southwestern Medical Center. We will stage at the Visitor Center for a mission brief. Riders will then proceed to the shelter to set flags. We will gather under the shelter and join any family members in attendance as the names are read. Military honor guard personnel from the three branches will fold and present flags (one flag per branch, one honor guard team per branch) following the playing of Taps. Some family members may be in attendance but the PGR may be asked to provide riders to receive flags if no family or friends are present. At the conclusion of the service, flags will be stowed and riders debriefed then dismissed.
