Details 

We have been invited by the family of Bill King to join them in honoring the military service of their loved one. We will do so by standing the flag line at his funeral service and again at his committal service, about six and a half miles to the southwest.

We will stage at the Blessing Funeral Home, where we will assist in setting the flag line, as needed. We will conduct the mission briefing and, at the direction of the Ride Captain, stand the flag line as Mr. King’s family and friends arrive. The presentation of our Certificate will take place just before the start of the service, or at the beginning thereof. Once the service is in progress, we will return the flags to the support vehicle, furl and stow them. The Ride Captain will provide the location and directions to the cemetery.

The PGR will reconvene at the cemetery, set the flag line, and prepare for the arrival of the procession from the funeral home. At the conclusion of the service, and at the direction of the Ride Captain, we will retrieve the flags and return them to the support vehicle where they will be furled and stowed. Following the debriefing, all Riders will be dismissed. 

NOTE: An Air Force Honor Team should be present at the cemetery, but we have been requested to assist as Pall Bearers.
