Jeremy, I should be around that week so if you and your friend are still looking for a place to crash....

I'm sure you know this, but The Tomb of the Unknown is at ANC.  The Wall is across memorial bridge near the Lincoln Memorial.  While you're in the area you can also check out the Korean War Memorial.  It's better at night, but you gotta do what you gotta do.  The WW II memorial is more or less within walking distance.  If you're in Class A's you might not want to--six blocks or so. 
I feel like a new person!

That sounds great, I sent you a PM with some tentative plans.

Jeremy, I'm still trying to find the words to express how I feel.  Between James deeds and his parents selfless words I am just at a loss for words.  I'm sorry for the loss of hero, yet I'm thinking this entire story can only help someone less fortunate then we.  Look inward and you'll see he isnt gone, he is just somewhere else.

Do you know if the PGR will be in attendance?  If not, it is something to consider.

Be well, be strong, and stand proud,

Chet

SOP, I just PM'd him about the PG.  My good friend is a member and he can set it up or direct me to the people that can.  Didn't mean to steal your thunder!  :)

I know that James' sister and his ex-wife are doing some checking.  I will let them know that I have a contact through CrashDB that is a member of the PGR in the DC area.  Thank you both for the info and I will do my best to make sure that those planning this honorable event are informed.

Changes of plans.  My buddy is out since he got a job that starts on the 17th, so he has to fly.  I would definitely rather have someone with me for a 2000+ mile trip, but this will give me a chance to ride the roads that I want and stop when and where I want.

Hey Jeremy,

If Crashes place doesn't work for any reason, I'm just a few miles up the road in Lorton, VA just off I-95.  You could stay here a night if you need to.  Have a safe trip.  Send me a PM if you want my info.

Thanks for the offer, I should be all set.  But I will keep you in mind if anything unexpected happens.
