To all Veterans & friends,
On Saturday February 21st at 0830, the annual parade in Sacaton, Arizona to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Flag Raising on Iwo Jima, will begin with a flyover of a B-17G Bomber (Sentimental Journey) accompanied by Marine Corps V-22 Ospey & Marine Corps AH-1Z Super Cobra (not yet confirmed).
Over 150 entries from all across the United States, will be in line & on display for all who attend, to see. There will be Iwo Jima survivors, Code Talkers & Native American Veterans Groups from New York to Florida to Oklahoma up to Michigan & Wisconsin. From Washington to Montana & the Dakotas. Kansas, New Mexico, And all over Arizona. Representing many tribes. American Legion Posts, VFW posts, Marine Corps League Detachments. ROTC groups from all branches. Veterans Motorcycle Clubs, Bagpipers and many other groups to honor this day. I hope that you have the time to come & see history.
It is something that your children & grandchildren should be a witness to. I have participated in this event for the last 14 years. And once again, I will be supplying vehicles for the dignitaries. I am looking for volunteers to help drive these honored Veterans & Elected officials.
Please contact me by calling or though the post. I hope to see all of you there.
