Gathering 2017 (XV) Morro Bay, CA

The California Gathering should give those in Western States, who can’t come to the Gatherings in the East,  the chance to attend a Gathering. There may not be any Gun Trucks there, but as always it will be a good one. Kathy and Sgt Willie is working to make this the Best one ever. If anyone know of Guntrucks or military vehicles in California or the West that might want to come let Kathy and Willie know.

Proud American in Christmas Parade

Tomorrow we will take Proud American about 90 miles southeast to Leesburg, Georgia and participate in their annual Christmas Parade.

We are supporting a request from a fellow CAMO Member who comes up a couple times a year to support us in our parades, especially the Veterans Parade.

I’ll try to post some pics tomorrow night.
