This coming Saturday the Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to welcome the 751st SCANG back to South Carolina. The 751st is a Combat Sustainment Support Battalion based out of Eastover, SC. These Heroes left on 21 February 2009 heading into harms way in Iraq. Let's give these Soldiers a memorable Welcome Home.
Staging for the Welcome Home Ceremony this Saturday, Feb 20th is as follows:
7:00 AM - Staging - Waffle House, 2208 Airport Blvd, West Columbia, SC 29170
We will be standing a Flag Line at Eagle Aviation for these returning Heroes. Flag line only, no motorcycle escort.
Ride Captain: Tom Bellomy (803) 338-0574
Mrs. Michele Canchola of the Welcome Home Committee wishes to pass along that the 751st SCARN appreciates the support the Patriot Guard Riders give the members and families of our Armed Forces. After a brief Welcome Home Ceremony all are encouraged to enjoy refreshments that have been provided by Texas Roadhouse.
For those of you who were wanting to ride both missions Saturday, it can be done. I'm planning on heading to Aiken for the Purple Heart Ceremony after welcoming home the 751st SCARN. Come on down to Columbia and we'll attend both ceremonies.
