Hawley Announces Patriot Trip V
June 26, 2012
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,I,C – Batavia) recently announced his fifth annual Patriot Trip for veterans to tour Washington, D.C. The 2012 installment of this much-anticipated tradition will take place from September 27 through 30. Hawley, who served as a 1st Lieutenant in the U. S. Army Reserves as well as with the National Guard, is a member of the Assembly Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. The assemblyman is encouraging both new and old faces to join the fifth incarnation of the Patriot Trip. “It’s hard to believe this will be the fifth year that I have the honor of joining Western New York’s heroic veterans in visiting our nation’s Capital to recognize not only their own service, but that of all the selfless patriots who have defended our freedom and safety as Americans,” said Hawley. “I encourage veterans and their families who have not participated in past years to join us in September and experience the powerful, moving venture that is truly a highlight of my role as a state legislator.” Patriot Trip V will include roundtrip private coach transportation from Western New York to Washington, D.C. and accommodations at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia. The trip also includes tours of the WWII, Vietnam, Korean and Iwo Jima Memorials, as well as Arlington Cemetery. Most meals are included with the trip cost of approximately $350.00.
