Local veterans place wreath at Tomb of Unknown Soldier
Submitted by Shirley Moody, Commander Hull-York Auxiliary
Thursday, September 20, at 4:30 a.m., some of Pickett County and Clinton Co., Ky. Veterans and spouses headed off to Washington D.C. arriving at the hotel by 8:30 p.m.
The next day, we visited the Smithsonian, the Vietnam Wall, National Museum, Korean Memorial, Lincoln Monument and the Capitol.
On Saturday, the Hull-York DAV Ch#5 Honor Guard was proud to be able to participate in placing the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was a very touching moment and we were extremely proud of our Honor Guard. We were all happy to see the Changing of the Guard, President Kennedy and Robert Kennedy's gravesites, the WWII Memorial, Martin Luther King and snapping pictures of the White House.
By Monday, September 24th, after all the walking and sightseeing we headed back to Pickett County, bringing back lots of memories. This trip has made each of us closer than we have ever been and it was a good time of fellowship for all of us. We are also happy to have had the opportunity to be with some of the Veterans from our neighboring State of Kentucky.
The Hull-York Ch#5 DAV would like to thank everyone who help support and make this trip possible.
