In Position Time Or KSU:


Details Of Part 1:

We have been invited to stand a flag line for Chris's service. They will open the doors at 1130 hours for the funeral service that begins at 1300. We will have a group of riders that will stand with a flag at the entrance of the stadium. We will rotate riders so that riders won't struggle with standing too long.

Just before the service begins, we will make our way to the underground tunnel at the northeast corner of the stadium. We will re-stage there and, when directed, we will move out onto the field and stand around the wall with flags to honor Chris and the family, while the service is completed. When it is over and the family has departed, we will return the flags to the trucks and, following a de-briefing, all riders will be dismissed until Tuesday morning for part 2.

Staging will be in Lot J, on the west side of the Ball Park in Arlington. Be prepared to move to another location if directed.

There will not be a water truck available. Bring enough water for yourself.

Plans may change, so be flexible as you come to honor this true American hero.

Security will Be VERY high; do not bring weapons of ANY kind to the stadium, the procession, or the interment.

Details Of Part 2:

We will stage at the football stadium in Midlothian to prepare for the procession to Austin for the interment at the Texas State Cemetery.

A very important riders briefing will be held at 0700 hours. Do Not be late for this briefing.

We will make a fuel stop in Waco at about the half way mark. This will be a very quick stop. Centex Patriot Guard Riders will assist us in fueling the bikes so we can continue on to the cemetery.

Due to the magnitude of the number of riders expected on Tuesday morning, the DPS (State Troopers) has told us that we will not be stopping in Waco for a fuel stop as originally planned. If your bike cannot go 225 Miles on a tank of fuel, you are asked to go directly to Waco to the Flying J truck stop and fuel up and stage. As the procession comes by the truck stop, the State troopers will assist all the bikers staged in Waco to join the procession. Staging in Waco will be completed no later than 0915.

If you run out of gas or have to leave the procession for any reason, you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REJOIN, This is by direction of the DPS Highway Patrol. You may continue on your own to the funeral service, but not in the procession. Big Flags are also an option but remember that we will be traveling at highway speeds.

2409 S. New Rd. Waco, TX. 76711

The Austin Patriot Guard riders will set up the flags at the Texas State Cemetery and will arrange for the parking of all bikes as we arrive.

When we dismount, we will go to the cemetery site and stand a flag line as Chris is laid to rest.

Following the service, we will furl the flags and be dismissed.

We will have LEO the entire way to Austin.

Please Bring Your Own Water - The Water Truck Will Not Be There.

Remember That Security Will Be High - Do Not Bring Anything That Can Be Determined To Be A Weapon.
