We have a very special mission this Friday to honor a Soldier who served
during WW1. This Soldier died in 1983 and has remained *forgotten* and
unclaimed ( cremated remains), for the last 27yrs.
Our PGRNY Veteran Recovery Program (VRP), will continue to locate, identify
and assist in these burials.
Please join us Friday in Bath at 12:45 pm, as we take part and witness this
Soldier given a dignified and honorable final resting place, that he was
promised decades ago.
Please bring your flags and arrive by 12:45pm to stand for this short and
honorable service. Afterward there is light lunch for us at the Wyoming
Veterans Club if you choose to go.
If you would like to serve as a Temporary Ride Captain to arrange this flag
line, pls let me know, we need at least 1.
Thank you very much for serving those who have served and sacrificed for us
