Details 

Riders will stage at the information center to be briefed about our veteran and this mission. Honor bikes will be selected to process with family and friends to the shelter led by the DFWNC representative and will relocate to the staging lanes. All other riders will proceed to the assigned committal shelter to set flags and await the procession. Riders will stand “tall and silent” for the interment service. PGR will be available to fold and present the flag if the military is not available (unknown at time of posting). The certificate of appreciation was presented by RC Wendy Ingersoll at the funeral service on 11/19/2021.

Upon the conclusion of the service, when directed by the MRC, riders will pull and carry the flags to the rear of the shelter to be furled and put away. Riders will then be debriefed and dismissed.

Flags Only; please bring your own water
