    Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) To get special Patriotic Baggage Cart to handle fallen Military remains.

    For people who don't have a Facebook account. Alaska Airlines employees make Patriotic carts for our stations to carry Fallen Veterans to their final destinations. Cart 11 is Fairbanks. The Cart will be flown to Anchorage, then readied for the trip July 3.

    We will have a chase vehicle with food, water and extra gas.

    Leave on July 3, 0700, for an all day ride to Fairbanks.

    Pre-departure send off the night of July 2 in ANC, presentation to the Fairbanks Airport on July 4.

    PGR, Combat Vets and American Legion Riders from 5 local halls will be notified in the Anchorage area. There's a Memorial Park at about the midway point and Fairbanks riders will meet us there. 9 hour ride with stops but the sun will be up the entire time. All riders are welcome to join the escort.
