    The Patriot Guard Riders have once again been invited to participate in the annual POW/MIA ceremony at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin. We've been asked to enter the cemetery from the north entrance precisely at 11:00 am, with our bike flags flying, to open the ceremony.

    Date/time: Saturday, 18 September 2010. Event to begin at 11:00 am.

    Staging location: Austin area riders will stage at the old Safeway parking lot, northbound IH-35 frontage between 11th and 12th streets, in Austin. Map link: tinyurl.com/POW-MIA-Staging

    10:15 – 10:40 am staging
    10:40 am briefing
    10:50 am KSU to cemetery

    Wx: At this time calling for sunny skies, high of 90 deg F. Don’t forget your drinking water.

    Notes: Please arrive fed, fueled, and hydrated. We will depart the staging location heading east on 11th and ride in formation into the north entrance of the State Cemetery. We will turn left (east) and park on the sidewalk and dismount. We will then form a flag line for the duration of the ceremony.

    Ride Captain: Steve von Roeder, svroeder@sbcglobal.net, work 512-972-7746, home 512-837-3843, cell 512-466-5769

    Flag Wrangler: Lyn von Roeder

    Please join us as we remember those who went bravely into battle and disappeared from our sight but not our hearts.


    This is a very touching ceremony and a good way for us to honor and pay our respects to those who are still unaccounted for and those who suffered in POW camps. Come join us, you’ll be glad you did.


    Thanks to everyone who attended the POW/MIA ceremony on Saturday. We had 26 bikes and several first time riders.
    Special thanks to the 82nd AirBorne for presenting a wreath on behalf of the PGR.
