HOTH Mission
PGR’s Vietnam & GWoT Wall Escort and Display
New Smyrna Beach, Florida 04-30-21/05-01-21

ABOUT THE MISSION:

The City of Edgewater has requested the PGR to display our Vietnam & Global War on Terrorism Walls during their Family Fest event.
Their goal is to educate the community and students from local schools on the “Cost of Freedom”, as the student’s scheduled trip to Washington DC was canceled due to the COVID Virus.
AMVETS will conduct a Veteran’s Ceremony at noon while the PGR stands a Flag Line.
The Vietnam Wall will be set up on Friday, 04/30/21 at 2:00 PM and GWoT Wall on Saturday morning.
Local LEO will provide overnight security for The Wall.
We will escort The Walls (approximately 8 miles) with LEO assistance from the Race Trac gas station on Hwy FL-44 in New Smyrna to the City of Edgewater on Friday, 04/30/21. Upon arrival to Hawks Park in Edgewater, we will be received by the Mayor and city dignitaries. In addition, a Wreath Laying Ceremony will be conducted in front of The Walls by city officials on Saturday, 05/01/21 at 2:00 PM.
Bike parking will be on the grass next to The Walls and our trailer, so kickstand pads are recommended.
Wreaths Across America, YMCA, and several other agencies will be attending this event along with a BBQ cook-off.
Please bring your 3X5 American flags and support this event.
