Honor Mission
Marcha Vecchio Pony Express Escort- Indiana, Veteran
USN –
MULTI-CITY, MULTI-STATE – 01-19-20

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Sixty-seven year old Marcha Vecchio passed from this life on 2 January 2020.  Marcha joined the US Navy in March 1973 as a Seaman Recruit, worked her way up to Lieutenant (O-3), and was discharged in November 1975. Discharge from the Navy did not stop her love and support for veterans. She joined the American Legion in Girard, Pennsylvania where she supported the Legion Honor Team, traveling around the country teaching honor guard procedures to other Legion members. She lived part of the year in Las Cruces, New Mexico where she joined the PGR in June 2008 and was an active member up until her death. Marcha insisted that no formal ceremonies be conducted upon her death. She even told her sister that when she died she wanted to be cremated, put in a coffee can, and shipped home. Her sister requested a PGR Pony Express Mission for her to escort her from Truth or Conseqences, New Mexico to Fredonia, New York where her family will scatter her ashes in a private ceremony.
