On 10 Dec 2011, my driver and I linked up with Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA NC 15-1) in Spring Lake, NC, then rode to Spout Springs, NC (near Sanford) to link up with a rental truck loaded with wreaths for the Wreaths Across America ceremony.

We escorted the truck to Sandhills Veterans Cemetery in Fayetteville, NC (near Ft Bragg) for Wreaths Across America.

After the ceremony, Thomas Sanders, William and Elizabeth Hile, my driver and I rode to Raleigh Memorial Gardens for a Christmas wreath ceremony. Young Marines participated in the event in Raleigh. During the cerermonies, Sarah Kazakavage presented a special wreath to Ol' Bill.

After the ceremony at Raleigh Memorial Gardens, a few of us followed Ol' Bill to Restlawn Memorial Gardens where he layed the special wreath with Doug "Fatback" Jones, who recently went to be with our Lord.

God Bless our Fallen Heroes, their Gold Star Families, those serving now, those who served, the families of our men and women in uniform, and our allies.

During the Wreaths Across America ceremony at Sandhills Veterans Cemetery, I stayed with Chris (my "Road Mom") while my driver roamed around and took photos. I met a young, patriotic American. "One More" took these photos... Thanks Dee!
