Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,I,C – Batavia) kicked off his fourth annual Patriot Trip this morning, leaving Batavia on a bus with over one hundred veterans. Hawley expressed his gratitude to the participants and his excitement to hit the road.
“The Patriot Trip is one of the best experiences I have every year,” said Hawley. “As a veteran, the son of a veteran, and a member of the Assembly Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, I am so honored to help our proud veterans visit our nation’s capital. We have a great turnout once again, and I thank all of the participating veterans for joining me to make this trip so special.”
Patriot Trip IV 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 FDR Memorials, as well as Arlington Cemetery, the Udvar Hazy Aerospace Museum and a two-hour tour of the Capitol.
