Arlington Escort Day 8 WE ARRIVE
Message from Bud:
Beckley W VA to Arlington VA
Terri & I,Dave,Wally, Mark we were running ahead of the main group to
setup for the entrance to the hotel.
So unfortunately I don't have pics of the main escort coming in on I66.
the police blocked all lanes of the freeway and from what everyone said
it was a sight to behold, it really brought tears to the eyes.
After we got to the hotel kissed the ground and gave the hotel a big hug
and we had congratulations all around.
YEAH FOR US!!!!!!
I’ve selected a few photos from the album for your
viewing enjoyment! Love the Buffalo Soldier trailer!! We have Bud
kissing the ground, Bud’s delightful wife Terri, our heroes on their

the escort arrived safely. Hard to believe tomorrow our heroes will
finally get the burial they deserve.
