Wounded Warrior Escort, to Camden Yards, 27 Jul

National Mission Thread

A happy mission: The Baltimore Social and Sports Club (BSSC) is hosting Wounded Warriors from the Walter Reed National Medical Center (WRNMC) and Ft. Belvoir at the ballgame on Friday evening, July 27th. WRNMC has welcomed our offer to provide escort up I-95 to the Camden Yards ballpark. At a similar event in the spring, 140 WRNMC and Ft. Belvoir personnel participated.

We will escort the Wounded Warrior vehicles from the I-95 Welcome Center near Laurel, MD to the ballpark. We will then form an honor line for disembarkation into the ballpark. At this point, the official PGR mission will end.   If the escort portion of the mission is not a good fit, consider helping to welcome the arriving visitors into the Stadium. Please notify the RC if you intend to help welcome the vehicles.

We are joining with vehicles traveling from the Washington, DC area on a Friday afternoon, so our flexibility is crucial. The current objective is to have the Wounded Warriors ready to partake in pre-game activities by 6pm.
