***SPECIAL HOTH MISSION***
1230 HRS (12:30 PM) STEP-OFF
SUNDAY, 6 NOVEMBER 2016
Patriot Guard and Associates,
We are again honored to participate in the largest Veterans parade in New England. Our own Assistant State Captain Jack Casey is one of the Grand Marshall’s for the event.
We will stage at Buckingham Street near the corner with Washington Street in the ESCORT SECTION. It is recommended that we arrive before 1000 hrs (10:00 am) as the roads begin closing as the step-off time approaches. Flag Vehicles (motorcycles and cages) are allowed, and we will have a truck and trailer for those who prefer to ride. We will have a grill and dogs and burgers prior to the start of the parade. Dress for the weather, which looks pretty mild.
Assistant State Captain Skip Petras will be RCIC and Flags will be on site to mount to the trailer.
STAGE: 1000 HRS (10:00 AM), Sunday, 6 November 2016 (Be early)
