Details 

We have been invited by the family of Ronald Thedford to join them in honoring the life and military service of their loved one. We will do this by standing the flag line at his funeral service, ride with him on his last ride in the procession, then again at his interment.

We will stage at the church and assist the support person with the placement of the flags, if needed. The mission brief will be given then the riders will stand the flag line to welcome the family and friends of Mr. Thedford.

Once the service begins, and at the direction of the ride captain, the flags will be retrieved and returned to the support vehicle where they will be furled and stowed. Riders riding in the procession will receive the safety brief, the remaining riders will then proceed on with the support person to the cemetery to prepare for the interment portion of this mission.
