A SALUTE TO AN EXCEPTIONAL ORGANIZATION
I am honored to render this salute to a very special organization,
The Missing In America Project.
Without hesitation everyone present climbed the church stairs to the storage area and began carrying the required tables and chairs downstairs to an awaiting truck. Then under the direction of Brigitte we lined the tables, covered them with white and blue cloths, and then began offloading the cremains from the vans and carefully placing them on the tables so that each of the 75, regardless of size, would be visible to those in attendance.
Some of the attendees returned to the tables for more pictures, handshakes and to again say “thank you”. We held our positions until the area cleared and when the fading sounds of the bikes signaled the departure of most, the volunteers gathered at the grave site to conduct our final assignment. The Virginia MIAP Team, The Brother in Arms Motorcycle Club, and the United States Black Cavalry Family all joined together to place the urns, vials, bottles and boxes into the vault.
Jan was honored to place the first and we all assisted with the remaining.
This mission was completed but others were ongoing at different locations throughout the United States. We could say our goodbyes for now but there would be more to come. So for all of you reading this, you should be thankful that the Missing In America Project is in existence and be willing to assist them when you are able to do so.
