Updated 21 Dec 07 1810 est S Sturgis

This is a confirmed mission, we were contact by PGR members that are friends of the Ray family saying they would like us to be at the services.

Lt. Ray was a graduate of Texas A&M and had been recently deployed to Iraq . The family said they would be honored if we could be there for their son, needless to say it is the other way around.

Please stand ready to honor Lt. Ray, his family and his community.

Thank you for putting up this information.

Jeremy was a stand up guy, as well as, his family over the years. I am glad that I was able to have a friendship with him which started back in H.S. football. Jeremy and his family regularly hosted a large group of friends and young athletes at their house on game days and those times are just a few of the good memories that I am confident Jeremy leaves with those who knew him.

Omega, any bike, scooter, moped, cage is welcomed with open arms. The PGR does not care about your politics, only that you care enough to come out and show a lost soldier and his family that you care. Please do not let thoughts of what type bike you ride keep you from attending.
The FAST acronym F.A.S.T. is the "Forward Advanced Support Team". This is all PGR members at a mission that will leave the funeral shortly after the service starts and relocate at the Cemetery. This will include a FAST Ride Captain, all M/C without big flags, all PGR in cages, and the flag Support Vehicle. We do not ride fast at all....
I hope that answers your question, and Merry Christmas!!!!!

I had a PM yesterday from a person who was under the impression that he had to be a veteran to participate in the PGR? This is ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE! My estimation is that 1/3 of the participants (like myself) are not veterans so please do not let that keep you from participating. Also, please note that you do not have to formally join the PGR to participate. As Marishka, Rob, and several others in the MotoHouston community would tell you the typical PGR Mission involves riding to the staging area at the appointed time, meeting and visiting with others riders until the riders meeting, then riding to the airport or funeral home typically with an LEO escort. Once at the airport or funeral home we are offered american flags and asked to set up a wall of red, white and blue. You will not be required to enter the funeral home or view the deceased. If the mission is at the funeral home, The timelines is slightly different, we ride to the staging area, have riders meeting, then depart to the funeral home to set up a flag line prior to the families arrival. A few minutes after the funeral service has commenced, we stow our flags and ride to the cemetary where we again set up a flag line prior to the families arrival. At the conclusion of the cemetary service we stow the flags and are dismissed.
Yesterdays airport mission for Lt. Ray was especially poignant. This soliders mother, father, brother, and sister inlaw walked the entire flag line shaking every hand and hugging every neck. It's something you have to experience and will definately put a lump in your throat. So please keep an eye on the thread or the PGR website which Rob posted up earlier.
Marishka, Rob, did I leave anything out?????

+1.

I think you pretty much covered it, Dub.

I will add, that we may also do rides for First Responders (Police/Fire Fighters/etc.), upon request by their families. As well as rides to welcome soldiers home, and so on. Never is there an obligation imposed on you to attend every mission. If you are available, and can make the mission, then great. If you cannot, then understood.
