Mission Policy during the COVID 19 Crisis
As you are aware, almost all public events are canceled due to the COVID 19 (Corona Virus) crisis. From the CDC, "Ongoing guidance recommends that, in areas where there is even minimal COVID-19, events likely to include 10 or more people at high-risk for serious issues should be cancelled. People at higher risk include older adults and people who have chronic medical conditions such as lung and heart disease, as well as diabetes."
We hold the greatest respect for every man and woman that has served. In that light the safety and health of your families is important to us. In consideration of the many factors involved, we will immediately implement the following for all missions:
- We must politely decline all mission requests for the safety of family, friends, and our members.
- We will still order the plaques and custom engraved dog tags and have them sent to the funeral home. We will ask that they be presented by the funeral director.
- We will be honored to attend any memorial service your family will have in the future.

In the hopes of improving communications and getting mission notifications out in a more timely and reliable manner, our State PGR Captain (SC) has set up a email notification system through "Constant Contact (an independent e-Mail processing service). This service will forward mission info from our SC, which may or may not be posted (yet) on the National website. All members are encouraged to sign up (Opt-In) to receive these emails. If you are interested, please do so at this link.
