POW/MIA Vigil Run
The POW/MIA Vigil run begins Friday 8 Nov starting at 1300 and goes through to the start of the CU vs. Stanford game on Saturday 9 Nov at 1300. The sign up sheet is posted below and it is important that every 30 minute shift is covered by at least 3 people. This is an event that we do every year out of respect for those who have gone missing or been captured, so if you're someone who values remembering these brave individuals, this is the perfect event for you. This event is open to civilians and all branches, so feel free to invite others.
Runners will meet outside of the Detachment Lounge in front of Gate 5 (Nov 8 and 9 1300-0530) or in front of the UMC by the entrance nearest the ballroom (Nov 9 0600-1230). These locations are where the flags will be exchanged from shift to shift. Please arrive NLT 10 minutes before your scheduled shift begins.
UOD: The UOD for cadets will be PTGs, the UOD for civilians will be appropriate workout clothing.
Memorial Push Ups: After every shift, the participants that are handing off the flag, will perform memorial push ups for the service member that the half-hour is dedicated to. Only the participants that are not running consecutive shifts will perform the push ups. If you are running more than one shift in a row, you will not perform the push ups in between shifts, instead you will continue to run.
Flag etiquette: The United States flag will always be to the right of the POW/MIA flag when viewed from the perspective of the runners. Additionally, the United States flag will always be held higher than the POW/MIA flag. If you have any questions, please feel free to email/text me.
