Nice to see you today. Besides the Parade, I'm involved with the following.

The traveling Vietnam Wall is coming to Petaluma 10/9-13/13. It would be nice to have a couple military vehicles next to the Wall. There will be coverage 24/7 during the event.

Joe Noriel and the Vietnam Vets are heading this up. Can the Military Vehicles group help?

Thanks

Steve

Hi Folks,

Please find attached the flyer for the visit of the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. It plans to be a very emotional and educational event. The important date is Wednesday October 9th 2013. The Patriot Guard will assemble at the Elks Lodge ( 2105 S. McDowell) where the escort to will begin. The truck is estimated to arrive at the Elks by 4pm but I would plan to arrive at least a ½ hour early to line up. We would hope to leave around 4:15pm. The route will go to Lucchesi Park. It should be a great turnout and we would love to have you participate. 15 Petaluma men lost their lives in Vietnam.

Thank you,

Joe Noriel

Hi Michael,

Thanks for helping put the word out. I have already heard from a few of your folks wanting to display their vehicles at the Wall. In case anyone asks they can arrive Thursday Morning or whenever works for them – the wall comes down 3pm Sunday. There will be security 24/7 onsite. The escort will be staging Wednesday at 3:30pm at the Elks Lodge in Petaluma.

They can contact me direct with any other questions.

Thanks again,

Joe Noriel
