The Colorado Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to attend the Welcome Home ceremony for the Southern Colorado Honor Flight members on Saturday, 14 Oct. 24 heroes (6 are WWII Vets, the rest are Korean War Vets) will arrive at the Doubletree Hotel, 1775 East Cheyenne Mountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, Colorado, 80906 at approximately 1700 hours. They will arrive at the side entrance as there is a construction project at the main entrance.
The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. They transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. For most, this will be the last trip they ever make, so the opportunity for them to pay tribute to their friends and reflect on their service is an incredible event.
We have been asked to stand a flag line for these heroes. We will need as many flags as we can get.
Stage: 1600, Saturday 14 Oct 2017 at the Doubletree Hotel, 1775 East Cheyenne Mountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, Colorado, 80906
Brief: 1615
Post Flag Line: 1630
Jim "Damnit Jim" Balcerovich will RC this mission.

I'd be honored to RC this again this year. Do we have Thank You pins available? Past years we've presented each member with a pin.

Also, in the past we've done this and w/ the construction, should do it this year also. Please park across the street in the Target parking lot, to leave room for the families in the hotel parking lot. It typically is pretty full.
