Itinerary- Friday, 06 MAY 11
9:45 – 10:15– We will rally at the church parking lot:
St. Paul’s United Methodist Church,
10401 Armory Avenue, Kensington Md. 20895

10:20 - Mission Brief
10:30 – We will stand a flag line prior to and during the service.

This is a static mission – We will not have a follow-on procession at this time, but this hero will be laid to rest at Arlington at a future date where we will once again honor him.

Bike or cage – it doesn’t matter how you get there.  Our Vietnam Veterans did not get the respect and attention our current generation of Warriors are getting.  This is our chance.

The weather for Friday is expected to be in the 70s with showers possible. Please dress accordingly and bring bottled water to stay hydrated.

Please bring 3x5s if you have them.
