NOTE:  The Memorial Service begins at 1300 hours with the unfolding and refolding of the American Flag followed by the presentation of the flag to the family, a 21 Gun Salute and Taps.  A member of the clergy will be present for final services and Paul’s final wishes were to be buried at sea.  The family is in the process of making arrangements.  No other details are available currently.  The Family has requested a Marine Corp detachment for the flag folding and taps but as of this writing they have not responded so the VCASNY is preparing to conduct the final Honors for Paul and his family.  The VCASNY is requesting VCASNY Service Members with ASUs to be available for Honor Guard to stand post at the Urn and to conduct the flag folding and presentation to the family.  Also needed will be SMs in OCPs to participate in the rifle detail for the ceremony.  Orders will be cut for this mission.

ADDITIONAL NOTE:  Since this is a PRIORITY MISSION requesting ALL SMs to attend, please contact CPL Chesleigh if you need carpooling or transportation.

PLEASE register below ACCEPT or DECLINE today.  Include what uniform (ASUs or OCPs) in your registration/comment notes.
