The Vietnam Traveling Wall from Albany to Saugerties
I am changing the time for us to meet and for us to leave Stewarts in Lake Katrine.
Steve would like us to be of assistance in the pin distribution, toll ticket collection and organization of the motorcycles at the New Baltimore Rest area. That being said, I would like us to be KU at no later than 8:30 AM so that we can get to New Baltimore in time to be of assistance.
Please make sure that you bring your road captain vests so that we can be distinguished as helpers when we get there and we can stow them for the ride.
We are wearing Veteran's related shirts or Legion Riders Shirts if we have them. Berets and vests are to be worn and we should look as professional as we can.
This is an honor that we have being chosen to lead this "Once in a Generation" event. Let's do it right.

We are the lead on this event and we are expected to have our road captain vests and participate in the organization at New Baltimore.
