Hike For Heroes

Milford, CT.

WED NOV 7th 0900hrs

Patriot Guard and associates,

We are pleased to have been asked to participate by the organizers for “Hike For Heroes” to provide a Flag Line at a celebration event being held in Milford at the Orange Avenue School.

Starting in September of 2012, the Hike for Heroes team set out to hike across the east coast on foot from Maine to Florida. Their journey will span nearly 3000 miles across the East Coast Greenway trail to inspire people they meet to help military families in need with the message that anyone can step up to help. Their mission is to hike up to 30 miles a day and conquer nearly 3000 miles across the east coast on foot.

One of the hikers is William Mosebach who is an Army Vet having served four plus years as an Airborne Medic in the 2-503rd 173rd Infantry Battalion in Vicenza, Italy. During his service he was deployed to Northern Iraq and inserted by means of a Combat Jump, the first and only during the war, where he spent a year fighting with and tending to the wounds of brothers that he will never forget.

We will stand a Flag Line at this event.

Sr. RC Jack Casey will be RCIC and flags will be on site.
