Kent Island HS Military Honor Night, 14 Sep

Kent Island (MD) High School Military Honor Night
 
The Patriot guard Riders have been invited, for the third year in a row, to escort and present colors at the Kent Island High School's home opening football game and Military Appreciation Night on Friday, Sept. 14. Each year the school honors our Wounded Warriors, Military, and Veterans at this game. Our participation is important to the community here. It involves some precision riding on the track prior to the start of the game, a flag line during the opening ceremonies, and on the field during the halftime ceremony. In the years past this has been an extremely fulfilling and fun event. All are encouraged to attend. We're hoping for a minimum of 8 riders but the more, the merrier! See you there.
