61 Lake Erie Mark and Meme

This is our third-year volunteering with the WWIA Team Erie event. Mark (Redneck) and I are boat captains. My most favorite part of the weekend is when the Legion hosts our Heroes. The parade, walking through the tunnel of color guard and Legion members just causes the ugly cry to erupt each year. The community of Ashtabula is so supportive of this event. They make me think we just went back to 1950 with their patriotic respect. I seriously have not met one of our Heroes that I have not been humbled by on this event. All have been so appreciative of our efforts. This year was met with so many challenges (log jam in the river, which was impassable, small craft advisory predictions and storms) which were resolved, and we had an awesome weekend. So many memories and friend made. Thank you for the Memories.
