QUICK UPDATE ON ITINERARY FOR CIVIL WAR HERO ESCORT
I am short on time, but have been asked to give an update on the escort of Pvt. Jewett Williams.
A small group of Full Flag bikes is meeting the incoming escort in Danbury this afternoon, and picking up the group. I am not sure if we will have a formal transfer of the cremains there or wait till the ceremony at CCSU. We will then lead the procession to Southington, CT where they will spend the night. Early next morning, we will meet and lead the group to CCSU and participate in the event. The program is in the Facebook post. Following the ceremony, we will then lead the group to Wakefield, RI, for a short ceremony at Riverside Cemetery at about noon. The next leg is from RI to Hadley, MA, and the final leg for this day is to Brattleboro, VT. We will spend the night there.
That’s it for this portion. of the ride. To take part in this memorable event, please be at CCSU at 0700 hrs (7:00 am).
