KIA (Killed in Action)
The mission request format will remain the same. Invitation must be by a family member or qualified spokesperson of returning Units.
The acceptance of individual welcome homes will be at the discretion of the Regional Sr. Ride Captain and based upon mission priorities, timelines and availability of Ride Captains.
We welcome requests for our presence for many different types of events. We have been invited to attend events such as; troop support rallies, patriotic rallies, parades and many other types of community activities. Acceptance of Special Events will be based upon whether the event falls within the confines of our Mission Statement. There will be events that we will not be able to accept, but we will be respectful and give a reason why we can't fulfill a particular request.
We will not take part in any kind of protest or counter protest of “un-invited individuals or groups”. We will however; when asked, provide a “silent shield of red, white and blue” by providing the formation of a flag line between those “un-invited individuals or groups” and the family.
