ESCORT FROM ROCKY HILL TO NIANTIC BAY

Patriot Guard Riders and Associates,
This is a reposting of a message regarding an Escort of the Veterans from the Rocky Hill Campus to Niantic Bay for a fishing trip. They want to leave Rocky Hill at 1330 hrs (1:30 pm), so we will stage at 1230 hrs (12:30 pm).
We have been asked to escort the bus from the Rocky Hill VA Facility to Niantic Bay for a fishing trip on the Blackhawk II Charter Boat. Additionally, we have been invited to join them on the excursion out to sea if you wish to go. We met the veterans last year at the dock with a Flag Line, and they were very happy and surprised to see us. If we can, I’d like to get a RC to bring Flags to the dock so we can do a Flag Line again. We will provide a Flag Vehicle Escort from the Rocky Hill Campus to the dock.
SC Mac McArthur will be RCIC for the Escort. Looking for an RCIC to meet us at the dock with Flags.
