ESCORT for WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA

Ok guys, we have been invited to join the Patriot Guard Riders in escorting the Wreaths from Lakeland to Bushnell National Cemetery. If you are not familiar with this event, it is definitely something worth seeing and will bring a tear to just about everyone's eyes. It's a beautiful ceremony where we take over 2,500 wreaths and lay them over each individual grave at the national cemetery to honor our veterans. Following the laying of the wreaths there is a short ceremony to honor the Missing In Action and a large wreath presented by each service. This event occurs simultaneously at over 450 national cemeteries across the country.

I think it would be great to get a large group of Jeeps to roll out with the deuce and a half and the bikes from the Patriot Guard Riders to escort the wreaths up to Bushnell. The event is on DECEMBER 11th @ 0800 at:

Saddle Creek Corporation parking lot in Lakeland,
3010 Saddle Creek Road, Lakeland Fl. 33801

Only Jeep requirement is to fly an American flag on your Jeep somewhere!

I need to know by FRIDAY DECEMBER 3rd if we have large enough interest for this!! Come on guys and lend a hand..

You interested?? Again Im not even asking for money, just you and your jeep with an American flag..

They do have a sponsorship open for $150 to sponsor 10 wreaths as a small business, but I figured I would start with just getting attendance..

I can't imagine much cooler than seeing a train of 10+ Jeeps with American flags and 50+ Bikes escorting a OD green deuce and a half carrying 3k wreaths to the national cemetery! Just post up here if you are going to be able to make it and I will update a list on the original post. I will be there again as the Navy rep. for the ceremony and will likely bring my wife again as she REALLY enjoyed it last year.

Josh...I got that buddy I'm helping in the AM as a tentative so I'm a "maybe". But I let JJ know via text so he may be able to join up.

If the AM thing happens I may be able to catch you guys on the tail end in Bushnell!!! I'll text you when I'm done.
