Veterans Day is special for Sons of AMVETS – Department of Ohio. For over 20 years, Ohio Sons have hosted a 4 day/3 night excursion to Washington DC making it possible for veterans, AMVETS family members, and friends to participate in services at Arlington National Cemetery. This year’s event, led by Sons Department of Ohio Commander Vern Davenport, was nothing short of OUTSTANDING!!
AMVETS National Commander Jan Brown, was joined by National Sons of AMVETS Commander Richard Thibodeau, National AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary President Dolores "Dee" Baggett, National AMVETS Riders President Tom McNamara, and National AMVETS Juniors President Abigail Lewis in presenting a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
Other stops during the sojourn include emotional and inspiring visits to the WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Memorials on the National Mall plus a stop at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania.
Another highlight was the release of the logos for Rolling to Remember Demonstration Ride scheduled for May 2020.
It was a positive memorable experience for all that attended and participated in this event. THANK YOU Sons of Ohio for spearheading this effort and continuing your tradition and mission of “Sons Serving Veterans.”
