Welcome Home - HQ 116th Inf. Brig. Combat Team, VNG, Staunton, VA, 21 FEB 08
From the Patriot Guard
Mission Plan - Thursday 21 February 2008
Welcome Home - HQ 116th Inf. Brig. Combat Team, VNG, Staunton, VA,
PGR will stage just off I-81 on Rte 250 just outside of Staunton, VA and will “insert the escort riders” into the convoy — after the VA State Police escort and before the troop buses — for a mounted escort of a procession through the streets of Staunton, ending at the Armory where PGR will form an Honor Flag Line as the troops disembark and move into the Armory to join their families, friends and comrades at arms.
The staging area has been scouted and selected to allow the incoming convoy (VASP escorts and buses) to easily exit the highway, insert the PGR riders and easily re-enter the highway — safely — with minimal time delay. We don’t want to add any delay in getting these Heroes back to their families and friends.
The RC will be in communication with the Troops on the first bus and will be alerted in time for the riders to mount and fire up the Iron Horses — ready to join the convoy as it stops for “insertion”.
