Part 2 Details 

This inurnment service is a follow-up to the mission that brought the remains of PFC Geary home on August 7th.

The family of PFC Geary, US Army, has asked the Patriot Guard Riders to honor his memory and service to our Country by standing a Flag Line at his inurnment.

All riders will stage at the Visitor’s Center where the mission brief will be given. Flag bikes will be chosen and relocated to the assigned staging lane. Remaining riders will proceed on to the shelter to set flags and prepare for the arrival of the procession bringing PFC Geary, his family and friends.

At the conclusion of the committal service, and at the direction of the ride captain, the flags will be retrieved and returned to the shelter storage area, where they will be furled and stowed. After the post mission brief, all riders will be dismissed.
