Patriot Guard Riders!

We have been invited once again to a special Welcome Home Celebration by the Naval Support Activity (NSA) & Lincoln Military Housing in Annapolis.  This Welcome Home is for Individual Augmentees (IA) who have been deployed and returned in the last year.  These are our Navy troops who go out on their own and come back on their own, often getting overlooked in the Welcome Home department.  We are celebrating the safe return of 33 heroes to their families.

The Welcome Home will take place on Wednesday, 29 September 2010.  This event will accommodate both motorcycles and cages.  There are no escort duties - only a flag line from the Fleet Family Support Center to the MWR Base Theater. 
Hand-held 3'/5' flags for each participant are needed - bike-mounted flags are appreciated but not required.  The Naval Support Activity, Fleet & Family Support Center, Lincoln Housing Authority and other agencies are extremely excited about the PGR participation in this event.

We will be riding on the Navy base. All riders will need to have all the DOD required riding gear. (boots, long pants and shirt, helmet and eye protection, reflective vest).  We won't need the reflective vests for the entrance onto the base because we are escorted by base security.  We may need them to get off the base when we are not being escorted by the security patrol.
