Part 1 Details 

Tribute To Valor Foundation has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to help honor 19 of our Nations “Medal of Honor Recipients”, as well Navy Seals, our Gold Star Families, all of our Nation’s service members, First Responders and their families that will be attending the football game between “Heritage High School vs. Trinity High School” on Friday Evening, Sept 13th.

Riders will stage at the Sheraton DFW Airport Hotel for the mission briefing.

This event will include the Patriot Guard Riders providing a maximum of 20 Large Flag Bikes to be a part of the procession from the DFW Sheraton Hotel to the Mustang-Panther Football Stadium (6 miles away). Grapevine PD will provide the LEO for the Procession.

Upon arrival at the stadium the procession will proceed under 2 large American Flag’s displayed by Grapevine Fire Department ladder trucks. Flag bikes will stop at entry to stadium, forming a motorcycle flag-line for the Medal of Honor recipients to walk through. After the MOH recipients are in the stadium, the PGR Riders will move to the reserved parking area in front of the main entrance and are invited to stay in the press box with all the MOH recipients during the game. Food and drinks will be provided.

Then at halftime (approx. 8:00 pm) of the football game, the Patriot Guard Riders will ride their Bikes onto the field for the introduction of each of the Medal of Honor Recipients as they come onto the field.

After the halftime festivities, the riders will be debriefed and dismissed. However, the PGR is invited to watch the second half of the football game in the press box, if they wish to do so.

PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS MISSION:

Due to stadium area requirements, we are limited to 20 motorcycles, preferably Big Flag Bikes. Please register if you wish to participate by emailing the MRC at tom.hardin27@hotmail.com.
