Unfortunatley due to extreme weather conditions in Alaska, Jackson was unable to board the flight that would have brought to Reno that day. Mission had to be cancelled. Further details available as they arise...
*** January 8th, 2014 update....
Ten Patriot Guard Riders, two from Nor Cal PGR, Alturas, CA, two from Fallon, NV, four from Sparks NV and two from Reno, NV joined with Blue Star Mothers and USS Corvina submarine veterans to welcome USAF Airman Jackson Bohl from his one year tour of duty in Korea.
Our group of approximately twenty stood the line, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Alaska Airline flight yesterday afternoon at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport; one problem though, no family or Airman Bohl.
I had received a 'heads' up' earlier about a possible 'misconnect' to flights enroute, however, nothing definite. Disappointing as it was, not all was lost as our first 'Welcome Home' of the new year did provide the opportunity to 'bond' with old friends.
